‘No obscene activities’: Delhi metro tells commuters after viral video of couple kissingtext_fields
New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation issued an appeal to commuters asking them not to indulge in ‘obscene activities’ after the video of a couple kissing on the train went viral.
A footage showed a young couple kissing each other while sitting on the floor of a metro coach and authorizes asked commuters to "refrain from indulging in such obscene activities".
Metro authorities have also requested to commuters to report such incidents to the "nearest available metro staff/CISF immediately, so that appropriate action can be taken".
Internet users have reacted with anger and humour.
In the video, the girl is seen lying in the lap of the boy sitting on the floor of a metro coach.
The undated video has enraged many social media users who have urged DMRC to take action against the couple, while some have questioned the idea of filming the act.
Many videos filmed in the Delhi Metro coaches have gone viral in the last few months.
Meanwhile, the DMRC, in a statement, said that it "expects its commuters to behave responsibly while using the Delhi Metro and follow all social etiquette and protocols which are acceptable in the society".
"Commuters should not indulge in any indecent/obscene activity that may cause discomfort or could offend the sensibilities of other fellow commuters. DMRC's Operations & Maintenance Act in fact lists out indecency as a punishable offence under Section 59," it said.
The DMRC appealed to commuters to "refrain from indulging in such obscene activities and maintain social etiquette/decorum while travelling in a mass public transport system like the Delhi Metro".
