A team of the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) on Wednesday visited Kamalapur Railway Station after numerous customers complained of being unable to buy tickets through the railway’s app.  

After visiting the station, ACC Deputy Assistant Director Md Monirul Islam said they talked to Shamim Ul Alam, general manager of CNS Ltd which developed the app, about the allegation but did not get any satisfactory reply from him.       

“We also talked with senior officials of Bangladesh Railway, including Kamalapur Railway station manager, to investigate the allegation and will prepare a report after reviewing the overall situation,” he said.

The ACC enforcement team asked the station manager to be alert on ticket black-marketing.   

Hundreds of people thronged five places, including Kamalapur railway station, in the capital on Wednesday to purchase train tickets in advance for travelling during the Eid-ul-Fitr.
