One person was injured after a fellow passenger hit him inside a Metro train on Wednesday following an altercation over a seat. The incident took place on the Dwarka Sector 9-Yamuna Bank line. Around 1.30 pm, a group of people boarded the train and asked a passenger identified as Parmeet Singh to get up from a seat, saying it was reserved for women.

But Parmeet refused. "A scuffle broke out after that," a CISF personnel at the Mandi House metro station said.

The CISF man said it looked like two members of the family hit the accused and then Parmeet punched one of them in the face.

"The train operator noticed the fight and stopped the train at Mandi House station where they were offloaded," said Delhi Metro Rail Corporation spokesman Anuj Dayal.

One person was injured and reportedly fainted. "He taken to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital. The other passenger was handed over to the police," Dayal said.
