A booking clerk at this station was placed under suspension yesterday night after he reportedly turned up for duty in a highly-inebriated state and failed to issue tickets. The heavily drunk clerk was not even in a position to issue tickets to the 100-odd passengers who were waiting to board Chennai bound train for more than 30 minutes.
This is the second time that he was caught drunk while on duty.
Departmental action would be initiated against the clerk.
