Railway minister Piyush Goyal has shared a TiKTok video that shows a dangerous stunt on-board a moving train almost going horribly wrong. The minister shared the video to highlight the dangers of doing stunts on moving trains.

In the undated video shot at an undisclosed location, a man is seen holding to the handrails of a coach while dangling outside. As he attempts to jump off the moving train to the ground below, he slips and holds onto one handrail while being dragged by the train. The man finally lets go and end up dangerously close to the train, but escapes from coming under it.

Criticising the stunt, Goyal wrote in a tweet: “Chalti train mein stunt dikhana bahaduri nahi, moorkhta ki nishani hai (Performing stunts on a moving train isn’t a sign of bravery, but stupidity).” He said that people’s lives are immeasurably valuable and they shouldn’t put themselves at risk.

Many criticised the man for the stunt and said he was lucky to have survived. While some appealed for coaches to get doors that remained shut during a journey, others argued in favour of a stronger punishment for those violating norms.
