Ticket Checker in Bandra Suspended for Assaulting a Commuter

The incident came to light when a person posted the video on Twitter.


On May 25, Deepak Rane, a Travel Ticket Examiner (TTE) had pulled out Pratik Shedge, a commuter, for not having a valid ticket. However, even after Pratik paid the fine, there was an argument between them which resulted in Rane assaulting and manhandling Shedge. It has been stated that Shedge had a valid pass but the stamp on it wasn't prominent.

Bandra's Government Railway Police (GRP) has registered a non-cognisable (NC) offence against Rane.
