2 held for travelling in train on fake disability certificate

Two persons were arrested for allegedly availing train travel concessions by submitting fake disability certificate in Thane district of Maharashtra, police said today.

The railways provide concessional tickets to persons with disabilities.

One of the accused, Ramesh Ahuja, recently booked his ticket in the Jaipur-Pune Express train by submitting a copy of the disability certificate purportedly issued by a city-based government hospital, said official.
