Scam or fraud: Indian Railways — Illegal collection of fine

Submitted by: Satrajit Dey

Complaint Details:
I was returning from my office at DLF Phase 2, Rajarhat from Dumdum railway station. No ticket counter was opened at that time. But TT named as Kaushik Banerjee from Sealdah railway station collected fine from me even though there was no tickect counter open at that time at Dumdum railway station. The time was arount 10.30 at night. They took my mobile phone as mortgage and thus made me withdraw money forcefully from local ATM machine. They gave me a slip amounting 260 but took 500 from me.
