A travel agent has been arrested for black marketing confirmed train tickets after booking them under fictitious names, said police. Mukesh Kumar Rai was arrested on Wednesday in a raid at his travel agency, allegedly with another 69 rail tickets booked under fictitious names for July 4.
“Rai was held from his agency in Paharganj after a complaint from a passenger,” said Sanjay Jain, deputy commissioner of police (crime). Rai would sell confirmed tickets at double the original price, he added.
The complainant,
Mukesh Chaudhary, had said he was unable to get reserved tickets for a trip to Mumbai and was told to get confirmed tickets from this travel agency. “When he went there and stated how urgently he had to go to Mumbai, he was handed a confirmed ticket of Paschim Express. He was charged Rs 1,000 for a ticket which originally costs Rs 414,” said Sanjay Bhatia, addl DCP, railways.
“The ticket was issued on March 23 in the name of 30-year-old male. As the complainant did not want to travel on the ticket, he asked for refund of his money, to which the agent refused,” Bhatia said. Rai told police that he worked for one Lalit, a travel agency owner. Lalit is on the run, the officer added.
