The vendor told Pritam that he would return the remaining Rs. 10 when he would come back but he didn’t return.

When Pritam talked to other tea vendors, they told him that it is a regular thing with that vendor and they are also facing problems because of him.

Pritam Saha was travelling in Netaji Express (12312) from Ghaziabad to Howrah and this incident took place ahead of Prayagraj.

Soon he was contacted by the railways and was asked to share his details such as PNR number and phone number. He also got a fraud call, may be because he was asked to share his details in direct message but he shared it openly, however the good thing was that he dodged the call. Later on, he was contacted by the railways officials after which he also got his Rs. 10 back and he was also assured that strict action is being taken against that vendor.

Soon Twitterati reacted on this matter, while some praised the journalist and the Indian Railways, there were many who talked about their problems which were not solved and stated that Pritam Saha’s issue got resolved because he is a journalist.
