Back to break­ing rules at LTT

Mid Day - - City -

JUST a day af­ter the traf­fic po­lice caught and fined over 100 auto driv­ers at LTT for ply­ing with­out their uni­form and for ha­rass­ing pas­sen­gers at the ter­mi­nus, the er­rant au­towal­lahs were back at it on Sun­day. mid-day spot­ted sev­eral auto and taxi driv­ers in civil clothes at the sta­tion. A rail­way of­fi­cial said, “It is true that driv­ers ap­proach com­muters at the sta­tion plat­form. Some­times we re­ceive com­plaints, which are for­warded to the Rail­way Pro­tec­tion Force. We can’t do much else.”

While this sta­tion has a work­ing pre-paid stand, it hardly gets any busi­ness. Rizwan Khan, who works at the pre­paid booth, said, “A max­i­mum of 20 to 25 peo­ple book taxis from here in a day. Some­times it’s as less as four to five taxi book­ings. I see other taxi and auto driv­ers loot­ing pas­sen­gers, but can’t do any­thing about it.”
