LAHORE: During a crackdown on fare-dodgers, around 83 persons were caught while travelling by different trains without tickets.

On the instructions of the divisional commercial officer, commercial inspector Liaqat Ali, accompanied by a special group of STES, raided Tezgam from Lahore to Karachi and Khyber Mail from Karachi and caught 83 ticketless passengers.

They collected Rs88,290 fine and deposited it in the national treasury. The dining car was also checked and faulty butter was seized which was disposed of on the spot. DCO Railways Lahore Zeeshan Shehzad said that ticket checking would be further expedited to discourage those travelling without tickets.
