A Travelling Ticket Examiner was allegedly assaulted and pushed out of a running train by six passengers as he reportedly demanded a fine from two of them for not having valid identity proof, police said today.
The railway official escaped with minor injuries as the Yesvantpur-Howrah Superfast Express was moving slowly at Katpadi, near here, yesterday, they said.
He lodged a complaint with Katpadi railway police who alerted their counterparts in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.
The five others managed to escape.
Police said they all were travelling in a group.
They allegedly pushed the TTE out of the train when he reportedly asked two of them to pay a fine for not possessing identity proof for their online tickets, they said.
A search is on for the others.
