MALDA: A TTE is accused of throwing a woman off a train near Eklakhi station near Malda on Friday morning because she wasn't travelling with a ticket that would have cost all of Rs 5. She was rescued from the tracks with serious injuries and is now in hospital.
A mob stormed into Eklakhi station and beat up several TTEs, including a woman, though the accused managed to escape. Many TTEs were held confined in a room for eight hours. Police had to negotiate for hours to get the TTEs freed.
officials deny the woman was pushed. "The woman passenger was scared of a special raid by ticket checkers and jumped off the train," said Katihar divisional railway manager AK Mishra.
The injured woman, 41-year-old Baiful Biwi, and her daughter Ameran Biwi were going from Adina to Eklakhi — one station away — on a Balurghat passenger train. They admit they did not have tickets when they boarded. "We had a Rs-100 note and the booking clerk refused to give change for Rs 10 (two tickets). The train was about to leave and we boarded a reserved compartment in hurry," said Ameran.
Before the train reached Eklakhi, a TTE — identified as R P Ram — asked Baiful and Ameran to show their tickets. When they said they didn't buy any, the TTE fined them Rs 500. Ameran said her mother admitted they were at fault and said they were going to get down at the next station. But the TTE was in no mood to listen. A quarrel broke out. Ameran said she was pushed.
The train was approaching Eklakhi station. Seeing a woman fall off, people rushed towards her and found her bleeding and unconscious. She was taken to Malda Medical College.
A mob stormed into Eklakhi station. Although Ram managed to flee, other TTEs - SK Ray, Gopal Majhi and Tanushri Thakur — were roughed up. They also vandalized the station and accused TTEs of collecting money from vendors. The stalemate continued till 5.30pm when the TTEs were rescued by GRP.
"We are investigating a complaint by the victim's daughter although no specific name was given," said GRP OC Gopal Kumar Dutta
