Mumbai: Crooks sold forged train tickets to commuters

The gang of four would print out bogus tickets made on a computer and sell them to unsuspecting commuters at Mulund station; they had been doing this for eight days when they were finally caught.

For the past week or so, a gang of four has been cheating commuters at Mulund railway station by selling them fake local tickets made on Photoshop. They had been so successful that they were considering selling similarly forged long-distance tickets. However, their operation lasted all of eight days before the cops caught them.

Commuters who bought the fakes from the gang may have been glad to escape the queues at the official ticketing counters at the station, but were sorely disappointed when they were caught traveling with counterfeit tickets. Things came to a head when the increasing complaints drove a railway official to inform the police about the racket.
