Officials of the Railway Protection Force at Gummidipoondi near Chennai conducted an awareness programme for students at the Higher Secondary School in Kaveripettai on the dangers of performing stunts on a moving train after a video emerged on social media on Wednesday in which two students in school uniform were seen doing such acts. The incident took place at Kaveripettai railway station in the suburbs of Chennai.

In the video, purportedly taken by a passenger, a girl can be seen boarding a running train while the boy follows suit. Holding the compartment door, she is then seen putting one leg out and dragging it on the platform. The act is then repeated by the boy.

Taking note of the incident, Tiruvallur SP Varunkumar summoned the students and their parents to his office. He advised them not to indulge in such acts which could cost their lives.
