More Tatkal tickets will be available for passengers now as the railways has weeded out several illegal softwares and arrested 60 agents who would use them to block such tickets, a top official said on Tuesday.Railway Protection Force (RPF) Director General Arun Kumar said the software cleansing exercise means Tatkal tickets, which would earlier vanish within minutes of opening of the booking, will now be available for passengers for hours.
Those arrested include a Kolkata-based person with suspected links to Bangladesh-based terror outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JUMB). In January, the RPF DG had said an e-ticketing racket with suspected links to terror-funding and money laundering was busted.
