3 months jail for exchanging train tickets

Bangladesh Railway has been selling its tickets online amid the Covid-19 outbreak, but tickets are still being sold on the black market. If any person hands over or sells his/her own train ticket, return ticket or any ticket for certain moments to anyone will face a three-month jail term or fine or both.

“To prevent this, the railway authority will conduct drives against the black market ticket sellers and buyers from August 16,” Shariful Islam, senior information officer of the Ministry of Railways said on Thursday.

Regarding this matter, senior information officer of the ministry concerned Shariful Islam said the decision was taken so that black marketers do not have any influence.
