Misbehaviour with MLA: 5 suspended

Five employees of the East Central Railway (ECR) have been suspended for allegedly misbehaving with Bihar MLA Sivesh Kumar and his wife on a moving train, sources said on Sunday.

Action was taken against four Travelling Ticket Examiners (TTEs) and a booking clerk as they had allegedly misbehaved with the BJP MLA and his wife in an AC two-tier coach of the Danapur-Howrah Express on Friday after the train left Patna.

Two of the five were detained for questioning. Following a complaint filed by the MLA, the ECR set up a three-member panel comprising Additional Commercial Manager (Goods), Additional Operation Manager (Coaching) and Additional Safety Commissioner, Patna, to investigate into the case, the sources said.

The probe team has been asked to submit its preliminary report by Monday.
