Hiru CIA, the most popular investigative Television news segment in the country, has exposed a train ticket racket taking place at the Kandy Train Station, targeting the foreigners.

This fraud will definitely bring disrepute to Sri Lanka, at a time the country is highly depending on the foreign exchange for economic revival.

Last April, an Information Counter was established at the Kandy Train Station.

Following a tender process, a resident of Ampitiya got the opportunity to establish the said counter.

However, Hiru CIA found that instead providing information to the foreigners, they are engaging in a racket to sell train tickets for foreigners for a higher price.

It was found in most instances, if a foreigner seeks a train ticket to travel to Badulla, the employees at the ticket counters would say bookings are over.

Then the person at the Information Center steps in.

Although, ticket counters does not have tickets, the person at the Information Counter has enough tickets to be sold to the foreigners for exorbitant prices.

He would sell a ticket of Rs. 1000 for a price between Rs. 3000 to Rs. 5000.
