Soon, TTEs will check tickets, intentions

Delhi: In a move to enhance security on board Indian railways, the ministry of railways has decided that travel ticket examiners (TTE) will be trained to detect suspicious looking behavior and be the first line of security on trains.

“Under this plan, ticket checking staff will be instructed to be vigilant to suspicious behavior by any passenger or doubtful objects in trains and report the same to the escorting Railway Protection Force (RPF) party or post at the next railway station. Zonal Railways have been instructed to comply with these measures,” an official said.

In the last few months, there has been an enhanced security and threat perception on trains which the ministry wants to combat.These railway ministry directives follow recommendations of a high-level committee of officers drawn from NSG, IB, Delhi Police, RPF, CISF and Railways, which have been constituted to formulate a Composite Security Plan for Indian Railways.
