The social media has opened doors for many to rise to fame by posting unique videos. This is driving many to perform daredevil stunts as well which are not only dangerous but also poses a threat to the lives of others.

In one such viral video, three youths were seen performing several stunts on a moving train in Chennai. All of them were seen brandished sharp weapons which appeared to be like swords. In the video, the youths were seen standing on the footboard of a moving train and dragging their weapons on the platform of a railway station.

The visuals were enough to instill fear in the minds of the commuters and other passengers travelling in the train. The video soon went viral on social media platforms. It also prompted the concerned authorities to take cognizance of the matter.

Responding on the matter, DRM Chennai on Tuesday informed that the three youths seen in the viral video performing stunts with sharp weapons in their hands have been arrested. In a tweet, DRM Chennai said, “The 3 youths seen in this viral video performing stunts with sharp weapons in their hand, have been arrested by @grpchennai!

The railway official further stated, “We have zero tolerance towards such instances of misbehaviour and dangerous stunts on trains or in railway premises.” Meanwhile, the railway officials have urged people to complain to @rpfsrmas or @grpchennai against such people.
