Man Shares Pics Of Ticketless Passengers Occupying Confirmed Train Seats, Railways Reacts

The passenger was travelling in the sleeper coach of the Bhuj-Shalimar Express

Of late, there have been several complaints about ticketless passengers occupying seats of legitimate ticket-holders on trains. In a similar incident, a passenger travelling in the sleeper coach of the Bhuj-Shalimar Express complained how unauthorised travellers overcrowded the compartment, leading to chaos and disorder.

In a post on X, user @Shahrcasm recounted his unpleasant journey and said how ticketless individuals occupied their reserved seats, leaving no space for his family to sit. 

”Sleeper coach, reserved s5, 22829 which departed from Ahmedabad a while ago. Without tickets People not moving and giving places to us with reserved tickets. Please help,” the user wrote on X and tagged Union Minister of Railways of India, Ashwini Vaishnaw and the Indian Railways in his post. He also shared a few pictures of the train coach packed with passengers. The train’s corridor was also congested, leaving little room for movement.
