A 55-year-old government official allegedly abused co-passengers in a Delhi Metro train and slapped a constable at a police station on Monday night. The man, who was allegedly drunk, also broke a television set inside the police station.
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which is responsible for the security of Delhi Metro, realised the man was causing nuisance when he was pushed out of a Metro train by passengers at east Delhi’s Shastri Park station.
“At 9.50pm on Monday, the passenger was thrown out by fellow passengers. He was barefoot. He started abusing the passengers standing on the platform. The shift in-charge went to him and asked him to come to the control room but he started arguing with him. Somehow, he was taken to the control room and Delhi Police was informed about it,” said a senior CISF official. He was later allowed to leave after paying a fine of Rs 250.
Sources said that the man was posted in health ministry and had boarded the train at Central Secretariat.
The police took him to the Metro police station where he slapped a constable who was talking on the phone. “He kicked on the table which broke the TV installed there. Later, his family was called from Shahdara and they took him. He was fined for creating nuisance and no case was registered against him,” said a senior police officer.
According to sources, the passenger had got into scuffle inside the train and was randomly abusing co-passengers. When the situation went out of control, the passengers threw him out of the train.
