Delhi Metro has become quite synonymous with chaos and drama in India. Whenever any unnecessary drama is reported in other Indian cities’ metro, people start comparing it to the Delhi Metro, such is its reputation presently. Once again, it has grabbed everyone’s attention and made headlines. This time, a man caught a thief stealing a purse inside the Delhi Metro. What happened later?

Passenger Beat The Thief For Stealing Purse Inside Delhi Metro

Ghar Ke Kalesh (@gharkekalesh) took to the X platform to share a video of this chaotic incident.

A video is surfacing on the Internet showing an elderly man beating another man inside the metro coach. The passenger was beating and hitting another guy as he was caught for theft. He was stealing a purse and got caught while doing the mischief. After people discovered his truth, one of them brutally slapped, hit, and kicked him. Other passengers were standing there and recording the incident.

Though the accused passenger apologised multiple times and pleaded with folded hands, the middle-aged passenger ignored and continued to thrash him. The thief who was caught stealing a purse tried to sit and catch the passenger’s feet to ask forgiveness but the elderly man did not stop beating him inside the crammed train. “Uncle ji mar jaunga. Aaj ke baad nahi hoga” (Uncle, I will die. It won’t happen after today), the thief pleaded.

According to the X post shared by Ghar Ke Kalesh (@gharkekalesh), the incident was reported at Kashmiri Gate Metro Station. A woman recorded the chaos and was heard saying, “Shakal aani chahiye na sab jagah, pata chale kaise chor hai yeh” (His face must be seen so that people know he is a thief) in the background.
