Bengaluru Railways Shocking Story: More Like Him Must Stand Against Corrupt Officials
We bring you one of the most recent shocking story of Bengaluru Railways. Not everyone is privileged enough to use social media to share bitter realities or tweet to railways (Bengaluru Railways) to ask for help. System needs to be tamed from top to bottom. Bengaluru Railways Police should give a thought about how to treat people with respect. They should be ashamed of this treatment towards citizens. We wonder how can they sleep at night knowing they have done so many sins throughout the day!
Read the real life incident of corrupt system of Bengaluru Railways and how they mistreated a citizen.
“I have read of those inhumane incident happening in many parts of country. But you won’t totally believe unless you encounter one. Now onward I can totally believe them. I frequently travel to China for my official trips. One thing I always adored about them is their heavy use of electrical or fold-able bicycle which they were carrying with them in subway. This time after coming to India I desperately started looking for such bicycle if available in India. At last I found one BTWIN HOPTOWN bicycle at Decathlon. I immediately bought and started using it carrying it with me on train between the route KR PURAM to Bangalore Cantonment. I am proud of the fact that I am not the one contributing to the pollution in Bangalore.
On 9/2/2016, while exiting from Bangalore Cantonment railway station one ticket checking officer lady caught me and started to demand fine for carrying bicycle with me. I tried to convince her, once folded it is not bicycle at all, it weights hardly 14 kg and it is very much portable. But she insisted on asking for 6 times the fare of travel. I asked her for the railway rules regarding this and the receipt of the bill. She took my pass and made me to wait for another 30 minutes and later came with an excuse that she doesn’t know the luggage rules. I was getting late and told her 6 times my fare of travel is 60 rupees and that she can have 100 rupees and let me go. But she demanded 300 rupees.
I told her even if it is 1000 rupees I will pay but I need the receipt. She presented same excuse that she doesn’t know the luggage rules. At last I lost my patience and started to call her corrupt. After which she slapped me, pushed me and called her police constable colleague to take me to the jail for misbehavior. He took me to the jail and started beating me. His other colleagues joined him, they undressed me and started beating me with hand, leg and sticks 5 people at a time. I was sure that I am going to die today and only my body will be found tomorrow.
I begged them in all the possible way I can. At last after an hour one guy listened to my plea and asked me to pay 5000 rupees. He asked me to call any of my friend to come with 5000 rupees and then can take me back. I called my manager Harish Haswani who came with to other two mutual colleagues of ours. All three had to plea to the railway police for more than an hour on my behalf as Railway police has threatened them that they will file a case of misbehavior with lady officer against me and that I have tried to press her boobs. I am too much shocked to see to what level character of a woman can fall. After too much of plea and the bribe from my colleagues they released me.
The lady officer fined me 190Rs stating my bicycle weight is 40kg although it is 14kg only. Also she fined me for ticketless travelling though I was having the monthly pass. Also, the receipt she issued is of date 8/02/16 and not 9/02/16 on which date I traveled and the incident took place. We all were too much afraid and didn’t dare to ask her for the mistake in the receipt. All of our focus was just to save my life and get me out of there.
I am undergoing the treatment. My left hand is fractured. Temporary my friend Sarfaraz is taking care of me. I am determined never to travel by train in Bangalore again. My fold-able BTWIN bicycle will never get used again.. ;(
But at the same time I have lost all the focus at my work. Fortunately my mobile has done the voice recording of entire incident. My mobile recording along cctv camera recording at railway is enough to prove if I have done remotely any kind of misbehavior with the lady. I am determined to teach a lesson to these corrupt officials even if it cost me my life.
I have written letters to all higher police authorities as well as human rights commission seeking action in this regards. They will respond but very very unfortunately as per PMO India office time.
