The expulsion order of Travelling Ticket Examiner (TTE) Shafiqul Islam, who fined three passengers who were traveling the Dhaka-bound Sundarbans Express train without tickets, has been withdrawn.
Railways Minister Nurul Islam Sujan said this at a press conference at Rail Bhaban in the capital on Sunday afternoon.
The minister said the Pabna Divisional Commercial Officer (DCO) would be “show-cause” in the incident.
Earlier on Thursday night (May 5), three passengers were traveling in the AC compartment of the Sundarbans Express from Pabna to Dhaka without tickets. Shafiqul Islam, the TTE in charge, collected fares from them along with fines. After this incident, Shafiqul Islam was suspended.
