MBTA puts train operator who dragged passenger to death on unpaid leave


A red line train.

This week, the MBTA placed the operator of a Red Line train who dragged a passenger until his death in April on unpaid leave.

On Monday, the MBTA changed the status of the employee who was driving at the time from paid leave to unpaid leave, “pending final disciplinary action”, the agency’s spokesperson said, Joe Pesaturo, via email in response to a Globe inquiry.

Pesaturo said the unpaid suspension is the result of “rule violations” related to the April 10 incident in which Robinson Lalin, 39, died. Pesaturo declined to specify what disciplinary action the T is taking against the operator.
