A passenger got stuck between an approaching train and the platform at Delhi Metro’s Qutab Minar station.

The passenger tried to cross the platform via tracks rather than taking the stairs when the incident took place on November 12. The step left him stuck in space between the platform edge and the train, said the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

The train operator immediately applied the emergency brakes and the passenger was promptly rescued. He was later extracted by the station staff and sent to the AIIMS trauma centre.

After the incident, DMRC released an advisory for the passengers advising them not to cross or walk on the metro tracks or enter restricted areas on the stations.

A few months back, a man was seen striking an elderly individual with force inside the metro, though the exact reason remains unspecified. Soon, onlookers intervened to remove the senior citizen from harm’s way, pushing the aggressor to the other side of the seats and confronting him vigorously.

While the motive behind the altercation remains a mystery, the fellow passengers rallied behind the elderly man and handed out a taste of their own justice to the younger aggressor.
