KOZHIKODE: A man posing as a travelling ticket examiner on the Mangaluru-Coimbatore Intercity express was nabbed today by Railway Protection Force personnel, police said.

They said some passengers grew suspicious about the behaviour of V P Niyas, and one among them alerted railway authorities.

Niyas was arrested by RPF when the train halted at Kanhangad station, police said. A check revealed he did not possess any identity card nor was he wearing the required uniform.

A southern railway release said that considering the seriousness of the incident, Senior Divisional Manager (Commercial), Palakkad, P A Dhananjayan directed all ticket checking staff of the division to wear their uniform and identity card and show it to passengers on demand.
