On 31.08.2013 I was travelling from Thane to Howrah by Bombay Mail No 12809 which stopped at Santraganchi station,Howrah,West Bengal.It was 5 O'clock in the morning and I got down from the train to go to my house as it was faster to reach my home at Kolakata from the noted station.I had valid ticket from Thane to Howrah.I stepped at the platform and to go to the concerned road I crossed the railway line along with aroud 25-30 passengers from the same train.Outside the station we were all rounded by foul speaking RPF personnel and they forcibly took us to the station GRP post,where we were all threatened with arrest for crossing the railway track and a case with a fine of Rs.1200.00.Sometime later a so called lawyer came and said that all can be settled by paying Rs.500.00.Fearing more harrasment I along with another young doctor from PG hospital,Kolkata paid the said amount and was let free,without a receipt of course.We came away and I don't know what happened to others.
Please take the appropriate action.
