Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla dials police to stop party on a moving train, 5 booked

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla had to recently call the Railway Police in order to stop five youths from partying on a moving train.

Om Birla along with his personal assistant Raghavendra boarded 'C' coupe of Indore Intercity-Express from Delhi to Indore.

However, five youngsters who had boarded on 'D' coupe of the train reportedly started consuming alcohol, creating a ruckus, shouting and singing at the top of their voice.

When Om Birla's PA Raghavendra went to speak to the youngsters regarding the ruckus, the five of them not only misbehaved with him but continued their party in full flow.

Om Birla then asked his PA to inform the police control room about the incident. As soon as the train reached Mathura railway station around 1 am, the Railway Police raided the coupe occupied by the youngsters and arrested them.

Railway Protection Force Inspector CB Prasad told India Today TV that all five men are residents of Delhi and have been booked under various sections. Their names were disclosed as Vikas Dagar, Rajeev, Pritam Singh, Manoj Kumar, and Amarpreet Singh.

Social activist Vijay Upadhyay said that if the railway security agencies do their duty properly, a lot of mishaps on moving trains can be prevented.

He added that when the passengers are sleeping at night on the train, even the police personnel on the train sleep instead of keeping a watchful eye on miscreants, thieves and other anti-social elements who may have boarded the train.
