Delhi Metro: Porn clip played at Rajiv Chowk station, footage goes viral

A video surfaced on the web on Saturday, purportedly showing a pornographic clip being played on a LED screen at city's busy Rajiv Chowk Metro Station in Delhi, prompting DMRC to launch a probe into the matter.

The 30-second-long amateur video has been circulating on social media. The clip could be seen playing on one of the screens of a giant video wall, a grid of 12 LED screens. While some commuters passed by it without noticing, some of them filmed the video on mobile phones.

However, when presented with the clip, Delhi Metro refused to acknowledge the bungle and said the screen was under commissioning with a private contractor.

"The DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) is not aware of this clip. However, this LED screen was under commissioning and testing by a private contractor and the same is still under commissioning. The work is still not completed," Delhi Metro spokesperson Anuj Dayal said in a statement.

"We will check all the details of the testing and commissioning process of the contractor to establish whether any such clip was played on the LED screen at Rajiv Chowk station and take adequate safeguards and action," the statement said.

A senior official said once the veracity of the video, shot on 9 April, is ascertained, action will be taken against those responsible for it.

Rajiv Chowk Metro Station, located at Connaught Place in central Delhi, falls on the busy intersection of Blue Line and Yellow Line of the metro network and receives a heavy footfall daily.
