New Delhi: A video going viral on social media shows porn being played on one of the advertisement boards at the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station as hundreds of commuters pass by.

Social media chatter indicated it may have happened on April 9, though the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has said it was not aware of such an incident.

“The DMRC is not aware about the clip being played. However, this LED screen is under commissioning and testing by a private contractor; work on which is still not completed. We will investigate the testing and commissioning process of the contractor to check whether any such clip was played on the LED screen at Rajiv Chowk station and take adequate safeguards/ action,” said an official statement.

The DMRC however asked the private contractor to reply whether such an incident happened and , if so, whether it was deliberate. A reply is expected by Sunday morning.

From the preliminary investigation, it is established that the incident occurred on April 9, 2017, at around 5 PM. As per the CCTV footage, three men are believed to have played porn clips through their mobile phones on this TV at Rajiv Chowk station, and the efforts are being made to identify these men.

Rajiv Chowk is the busiest station in the Delhi Metro as it is the junction for the traffic-heavy blue and yellow lines.

This isn’t the first time the DMRC has faced an embarrassing situation like this. In 2013, CCTV footage from the Delhi Metro showing couples in intimate positions had found its way on international pornographic sites, causing an uproar from riders over privacy concerns.

The LED screen is used for displaying advertisements. As of now, it remains switched off.
