The Kerala Police arrested a man from Odisha on Wednesday for allegedly killing a Travelling Ticket Examiner (TTE). Identified as Rajinikantha, the man allegedly pushed the TTE out of a moving train near Kerala’s Mulankunnathukavu railway station, resulting in the latter’s death.

The incident occurred late on Tuesday night when the accused allegedly pushed the TTE out of the moving Ernakulam-Patna Express near Mulankunnathukavu railway station, as per police reports.

The accused has been charged with the murder of TTE K Vinod by the Thrissur railway police.

According to eyewitness accounts from train passengers, the accused boarded a sleeper coach of the superfast train from Thrissur while in an inebriated state.

An eyewitness recounted that the accused got into a dispute with the TTE over the fine for traveling without a reserved ticket. The altercation escalated when the accused pushed the TTE through the door while the latter was informing the control center about the errant passenger.

The eyewitness, speaking anonymously, stated, “…I immediately ran and got some passengers to restrain the accused. He was quite strong and in an inebriated condition. I then informed the other TTEs on the train (about the incident).”

Railway police officers were alerted, and the accused was detained at Palakkad.

The deceased, Vinod, had joined the TTE wing after being transferred from the diesel loco unit two years ago due to a physical injury. He hailed from Manjummel in Ernakulam district.
