Delhi: Drunk woman denied metro entry, CISF-personnel drop her safely
A drunk woman was dropped home on Monday night by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel posted at a Delhi metro station after she was denied permission to board a train. Around 10.45 PM, the 25-year-old woman, a resident of Ghitorni, was stopped at the security checkpoint by female constables at Samaypur Badli. She started arguing and demanded entry, but was refused.
'She was drunk, travelling alone, unable to walk properly'
"The woman was in an absolutely inebriated state, travelling alone and was not able to walk properly. Seeing her condition, she was denied entry as drunken passengers are not allowed in the metro," said a CISF officer. The woman continued arguing and female personnel were called in to pacify her. The CISF also informed the Delhi Police and the Delhi Metro Rail Police.
Husband requested them to drop her at Dhaula Kuan station
The Delhi Police transfered the case to the Metro Police. "We then contacted her husband after taking his phone number from her. Her husband said he could pick her up from Dhaula Kuan metro station," the CISF official added. Accompanied by a male and female constable, she was then dropped there in a car and handed over to her husband.
Despite strict norms, CISF couldn't turn the woman away
In 2014, CISF chief Arvind Ranjan had said that passengers who are "totally out of their senses" will not be given permission to board the metro and that they are 'absolutely clear' about it. However, fearing the woman's safety, the CISF personnel could not turn her away. "We even book cabs so that the passengers can travel safely," said another CISF officer.
