Vigilance Sleuths Nab Two More Dalaris

TTD Vigilance Wing cops nabbed two more middle men who had cheated devotees with fake Rs.300 tickets collecting huge sum from them.


According to the information given by the concerned officials, TTD Vigilance wing officials on January 27 carried out surprise checks at Rs.300/ scanning point and on suspicion enquired one Sri C.Subramanian and two of his friends from Pondicherry, who told them that they reached Tirupati and contacted one auto driver who promised to arrange darshan tickets. For the same, they paid him Rs.4, 000 through phone pe and a cash amount of Rs. 4000/-. 


The Auto driver named Mouna Kumar along with his friend Sounder arranged fake and fabricated darshan tickets to the pilgrim by changing data, name, and particulars. When the pilgrims reached Tirumala and enquired by TTD Vigilance sleuths, they realized they were cheated with fake tickets and gave complaint against the auto driver who sold the fabricated tickets at a whopping price.


Following the complaint by the pilgrims, the TTD Vigilance lodged a complaint in Tirumala Two Town Police Station and a case was registered in 2022 U/s 420 &468 r/w 34 IPC.


TTD which has already appealed to devotees multiple times not to fall into the trap of the middlemen for darshan tickets has again cautioned them of such dalaris and asked them to book tickets only through the official website of TTD.


TTD Vigilance has also warned the Auto and Taxi drivers that if they are found involved in darshan ticket cheating cases their vehicles and driving licenses would be invariably seized and produced in the court for legal action against them.
