CBI registers case against senior railway official

CBI registers case against senior railway official - Chennai City NEWS
- The Times of India

CHENNAI: The anti-corruption wing of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a case against a senior railway official for
allegedly allowing shops in railway stations to function after their contract had expired.

According to sources, the CBI found prima facie evidence that Yesuratnam, senior divisional commercial manager (SDCM), asked the Railway Protection Force (RPF) and station managers not to book cases against 54 vendors at Chennai Central and Egmore railway stations, whose contract had expired. He also did not to allow Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to take over the stalls, causing Rs 3 crore in losses to Southern Railway.

The CBI raided Central and Egmore railway stations but the raids did not reveal anything substantial. The agency has registered a case against the officer for misuse of official authority to cause revenue loss to railways.

A senior railway official said that the stalls were located at different points on the platforms and were auctioned to traders by the commercial department of Chennai division. Southern Railway was in the process of handing over the stalls to IRCTC, which has been entrusted with managing these stalls, following a change in policy.

"The stalls were being handed over to IRCTC one by one as the contracts expired. Once the contract expires, railways takes stock of the condition of the stalls before passing it to IRCTC," said an official.

Southern Railway has been on the CBI radar for quite sometime. It busted misuse of emergency quota tickets last year; arrested a railway deputy chief engineer from a running train and seized Rs 6.75 lakh of unaccounted money from him; unearthed a scam in procuring and servicing escalators and lifts at Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) railway stations in the city.
