The police busted a job racket gang that cheated nearly 100 men of over Rs. 3 crore by promising them jobs in the Railways.
The fraudsters conducted medical tests, took the victims on railway station visits, and even issued appointment letters and ID cards.
According to the Central Crime Branch (CCB), Sundaradas (65), a retired PWD staffer, and Jagannathan (53), a physical education teacher, both from Salem, orchestrated the fraud.
Over the past two years, they posed as agents hiring young men for Railway jobs. Rajan, a Perambur resident, who is the kingpin, is absconding.
“Sundaradas and Jagannathan collected between Rs. 3 lakh and Rs. 5.5 lakh from each candidate,” said A. Selvasekar, inspector,

A board meeting of Kerala Monorail Corporation Ltd. (KMCL), chaired by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday, gave its approval for opening the financial bid submitted by a consortium on the elevated mass rapid transit system (MRTS) for Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode.
A board meeting of Kerala Monorail Corporation Ltd. (KMCL), chaired by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday, gave its approval for opening the financial bid submitted by a consortium on the elevated mass rapid transit system (MRTS) for Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode.

The Hindu that the decision to open the financial bid was taken after the official representing E. Sreedharan, Principal Adviser to the DMRC, informed the board meeting that leaving the bid half-way after opening and clearing the technical bid would “lead to litigation”.
The opening of the financial bid was opposed mainly by Managing Director of the Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) Elias George and Additional Chief Secretary (Finance) V. Somasundaram. The KMRL MD, who did not attend the meeting, in a note said there was only a single tender for the MRTS and that conditions were being enforced by the consortium. He also favoured retendering as another player had evinced interest, sources said. Mr. Somasundaram, on his part, expressed reservations about the estimate submitted by the DMRC.
Minister for Public Works V.K. Ebrahim Kunju urged the board to “take a decision instead of dragging it.” Following this, the Chief Minister and State Minister for Railways Aryadan Mohammed intervened and favoured the opening of the financial bid submitted for selecting the exclusive developer-contractor.
Once the decision is communicated, the DMRC can open the tender in the presence of the KMCL officials in Delhi.
The question is whether the financial bid will follow the CVC guidelines. There was scope for negotiations if there was variation, sources said.
Ministers K.M. Mani, P.K. Kunhalikutty, M.K. Muneer, Manjalamkuzhi Ali, V.S. Sivakumar, and Managing Director of KMCL P.I. Sheikh Pareeth attended.

The Mysore division of South Western Railway is exploring sale of commercial space to advertisers to boost its revenue, the bulk of which is from freight and passenger earnings.Rajkumar Lal, Divisional Railway Manager, told presspersons here on Wednesday that the Railways has land in prime places across the country, which will be sold to advertisers at competitive prices.This will be a win-win situation for the Railways and the advertisers. The Railways will also use a small portion of the commercial hoardings to spread its message on hygiene, safety and security. Such land is available in Mysore, Hassan, Arsikere, Davangere, Shimoga and other major towns and cities in the Mysore division, he said.Mr. Lal said the commercial hoardings will be modular, keeping in mind the heritage status of Mysore and to ensure that the hoardings blend with local aesthetics.

In addition to sale of prime space, the division will also promote vinyl wrapping of trains so that advertisers can reach out to millions of people.“Our trains not only pass through different places in the Mysore division but also across the country. Hence the advertisers have an opportunity to reach out to millions of people at a competitive price,” he said.
The available land at level-crossing gates where vehicles stop will also be up put for sale.
Mr. Lal said the Railways were also open to a quid pro quo with the advertisers and they could sell commercial space in return for services such as landscaping the area, maintenance of premises and so on. However, there will be stringent terms and conditions for advertisers to adhere to norms and ensure that the aesthetics of the place was not vitiated, said Mr. Lal. The Railways hopes to earn Rs. 3.5 crore during the current financial year through this, he said.
Earlier, Mr. Lal launched the commercial services of Shrishti Creations, which have installed 30 LED screens at vantage points in the Mysore Railway Station. This will not only beam information pertaining to arrival, departure, late running of trains but also commercials and entertainment programmes. The Railways has received a licence fee but there are no other financial implications involved, he said.
Senior Divisional Commercial Manager K. Anil Kumar and ADRM Rakesh Gupta were present.

The security system is being put in place at a cost of Rs. 2.5 crore, he said.Mr. Lal told presspersons here on Wednesday that 34 cameras will be positioned at vantage points, of which 20 will be the pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras that will give a full-field view of the area under surveillance.The remaining 14 cameras will be stationary, focussing on sensitive areas such as platforms, entry and exit points, foot over-bridges and waiting halls, among others. These cameras will provide high resolution displays, recording and video playback facilities.There will be continuous monitoring of the station premises and the property of the Railways, including coaches, he said....

The camera positions have been identified and agreed upon by experts, while the control room to monitor the images has also been established. “By the end of this financial year, the new security system should be in place,” Mr. Lal said.
There will be only one entry and exit point as part of the new security system and the baggage screening will be automated with X-ray scanners as in airports.
In addition, there will be an under-vehicle scanning system to ensure that the security is foolproof, he said.
For security on board the trains, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) staff will be deployed on long-distance journeys.
The integrated security system is being implemented in nearly 200 railway stations across the country in a bid to thwart untoward incidents.
Three stations in the South Western Railway have been identified for the integrated security system based on their importance and threat perception.
In three stations
Apart from Mysore, the system will be in place in Bangalore City and Yeshwantpur stations.
Apart from CCTV cameras to monitor passengers, there will be access control at railway stations to prevent entry of unauthorised persons.

Defending champion ONGC (Dehradun) played a brilliant last two quarters to oust Indian Army (New Delhi) 66-46 for the men’s title in the Golden Jubilee all-India basketball tournament for the PSG Trophy at the PSG Tech indoor stadium courts here on Wednesday.
ONGC was racy at the start. Murali Krishna dunked the team’s first points and Riyazuddin and Briguvanshi boosted it further with booming two pointers. Indian Army, which shocked favourite IOB (Chennai) in the semifinals, played a waiting game until then. It took some time to settle down and once it did, the players came out with their guns blazing.
Gopal Ram, Jairam Hat and Arockia Babu fired baskets with ease and the team came from behind to levels scores at 14 at the end of the first quarter.
