In one such incident, a passenger handed over his bag to another person who was standing near the ticket window before he went to purchase his ticket. However, this person fled with the bag of the passenger. Unfortunately for the victim, the bag contained Rs 5, 98,000/- (Rs Five Lakhs Ninety Eight Thousand) in cash.
According to police sources, the victim Ravindra alias Ravi Shankarao Padole aged 32 years and a resident of Dalal Square, Dahi Bazaar.
