THE transport minister of India's eastern Bihar state and his personal security guard were fined $41 each for travelling ticketless on a train, a report said.
Awadh Bihari Choudhry, a member of federal railways minister Laloo Prasad Yadav's regional RJD party and a minister in Bihar's government, had to pay 1,412 rupees ($41.22) to avoid arrest, the United News of India said.
Both he and his guard were caught in the air-conditioned section of an express train, railways official N.K. Singh said.
The report did not say if the minister deliberately failed to buy tickets.
