SURAT: The Railway Protection Force (RPF) on Thursday exposed yet another travel agent who was using his personal ID to book e-tickets on the IRCTC website.

Sources said that the RPF police inspector Gracious Fernandes had received information about the alleged involvement of the owner of LD Mani and Travel services in the black-marketing of railway e-tickets. During the surprise raid, the owner identified as Mitul Babu Patel was nabbed with six e-tickets of various long distance destinations.

RPF officials said that the travel agent had opened a fake account on the IRCTC website and that he was booking e-tickets, which he used to sell for hefty commission to the gullible passengers wanting to travel long distance on confirmed tickets. More info
