A commuter, who was travelling towards CSMT on May 9, 2019, spotted a group of youngsters performing stunts on a moving train. The incident was recorded by the commuter. In the video recorded by the commuter, the boys were seen performing various stunts standing on the footboard and hanging outside of the train.

Senior inspector Rajendar Pal, the Wadala GRP told mid-day,” We formed four teams and instructed them to look for the youths in the video. When we checked the CCTV footage of the station, we came across a video where the boys were seen performing stunts. The video further revealed that they get off at Masjid Railway station.”

“Once we found out their whereabouts, our team laid a trap and finally caught one of the boys who was in the same clothes as captured whole performing stunts in the video. We took him and one of his friends into custody and it was at the police station where he accepted his act,” Pal added .

The arrested boy is a 15-year-old and resides in Andheri. The minor told the police that he was with his friends and was going to purchase a whitener (a substance used for intoxication). They travel by the same local all the time. A case has been filed against them under sections 336 (Act endangering life or personal safety of others) 34 (common intention) of Indian penal code and the police are on the lookout for two more boys who were seen in the footage
