TTE seen taking money from poor man in viral clip, suspended by Railways

The DRM of Mughalsarai station responded to the viral video stating that the official in the video had been identified and had been suspended pending a full investigation.

A viral video has been shared several times on Social Media where a railway official who appears to be a Traveling Ticket Examiner (TTE) can be seen taking money from a poor man travelling on the train.


In the video, it can be seen that the poor man is giving the railway official money and then standing there with folded hands seemingly pleading with the Railway official. After a while, it can be seen in the video that the TTE gives the poor man a couple of notes back that he had taken and keeps the rest with him.

After the video went viral, several people tagged the Railway Minister, Piyush Goyal and the Railway Minister official handle to alert them of the transgression. While the date and location of the video were unknown, many said that these transgressions are a regular feature and the ones who get affected the most by it are the poor folks who travel by train.

The Railway Ministry first responded to one such tweet and asked for the details of the video so an investigation could be conducted into the matter.


Then, the DRM of Mughalsarai station responded to the viral video where the railway official is seen taking money, stating that the official in the video had been identified and had been suspended pending a full investigation.

The DRM said that the video is 6 to 8 months old and the official said that he had accepted money to get a ticket made for the poor man. He also said that after accepting the money, the official claims that he did get the ticket made. However, he has been suspended pending an investigation into his actions.
