New Delhi: An initiative against ticketless travel has exposed some unusual suspects. A group of 40 ticketless cops were found hiding in toilets to avoid being penalized by the TTE.

The drive against ticketless travel was launched by railway magistrate V K Singh.  There was a surprise check on Mahakaushal Express and Chhattisgarh Express trains and the results were shocking.

Since these two trains are most convenient way to travel between the neighbouring districts of Agra and Mathura, the number of ticket less passengers are high in number.

A team led by the railway magistrate along with assistant commandant of Railway Protection Force (RPF) and five other security personnel challaned a total of 103 passengers. Of these, 40 were reported to be civil police personnel, posted at various stations and outposts in the two districts.

Total Rs 29,780 fine was collected out which Rs 11,990 was collected from the cops.
