Men fined in women's coaches

Delhi Metro has penalised 295 men during the past one week for travelling in the women's coaches on Metro trains.

Eleven flying squads, comprising a station manager, DMRC police staff, security controller and two security guards, that fanned across all six operational lines of Delhi Metro since last Friday also counselled 2,016 people.

The special drive was conducted for a week following complaints from women passengers regarding entry and misbehaviour by male passengers inside the ladies coach in recent days.

As part of the drive, the squads travelled on trains and conducted surprise checks to ensure that women commuters feel safe.
