Ticketless Woman Refused To Vacate Train Seat, Railways Reacts

 A ticketless woman on a train refused to vacate the seat that she forcefully occupied. She argued with co-passengers who repeatedly asked her to leave the seat. At one point, she also claimed to be a Railways employee, based on which she felt "entitled" to the seat. The whole incident was caught on camera. X user Shonee Kapoor shared the clip on the microblogging site on Friday. The video not only left social media users enraged, but it also prompted a response from the Indian Railways. 

"The lady is occupying a reserved seat without a ticket. Refused to get up, arguing with everybody around. Best usage of #women-card," Ms Kapoor wrote in the caption of the post. 

The date and location of the incident is not known. However, the comments section of the video has been flooded with all kinds of reactions. Reacting to the clip, Railway Seva, the official account for support to passengers, asked for details for further investigation. "We request you to please share the journey details (PNR/UTS No.) and Mobile No. with us preferably via DM. You may also raise your concern directly on http://railmadad.indianrailways.gov.in or dial 139 for speedy redressal," Railway Seva wrote. 

Northern Railway also responded. "We request you to please share the journey details (PNR/UTS No.)" it said.

Meanwhile, in the comments, users demanded stricter rules from authorities. 

"Some women feel too entitled these days for absolutely no reason !! This is not what women empowerment aims at!!" wrote one user. "Recently been seeing too many videos of the ticketless travelers harassing the ones who actually reserved seats in advance. After watching these I would rather take a flight/ bus instead of trains," commented another. 

"The main reason for such things is that there aren't enough TCs or staff members to minimize these communication problems. No one will gain from such things becoming viral. A system to instantly inspect and validate the seat should exist," expressed a user.
