According to divisional commercial manager of Agra Prashasti Srivastava, the incident took place on March 8 at 11:30 pm due security lapse. Action is being taken in the matter.

Sunil Kumar has been reportedly booked for violating Sections 159 and 147 of the Railway Act.

The incident came after a video from Haryana's Gurugram went viral where a person was throwing cash out of a moving car. According to local police, he was inspired by a newly released web series Farzi to take the move.

“Police came to know about an incident through a video on social media where two men tried to re-create a scene from a movie by throwing currency notes from a car on a Golf course road. Police filed a case under various sections of IPC. Main accused identified,” senior police official told ANI.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has recently urged passengers to travel and not become a ‘trouble’ in an advisory against filming reels and dance videos for social media platforms inside the metro trains.

“Travel in metro and don't become a trouble,” DMRC said in a tweet in Hindi.
