MUMBAI: To curb the menace of unauthorised agents who book tickets online in bulk, sometimes using illegal software, and indulge in black-marketing, Central Railway (CR) has launched a massive drive against such activities across its five divisions. Teams of the Railway Protection Force (RPF) and CR’s Commercial and Vigilance Departments conducted joint raids at several places over the last few days and seized illegally bought tickets besides making arrests, CR’s chief PRO Sunil Udasi told PTI.

“ Normally, during peak seasons such as Diwali, these touts try to cash in on the opportunity. We have started this drive to show our zero tolerance for such activities and it will continue,” the chief PRO said.
