Performing dangerous stunts while travelling on a local train in Mumbai, a group of young men stole a mobile phone from a commuter who was standing on the platform. Not only they snatched the phone, one from the group also recored the entire incident on a mobile camera.
The group was onboard a Harbour line train between Chunabhatti and GTB Nagar stations and the footage has now swung the police and RPF into action. The authorities verified the footage and traced the youths. Later they were detained, news agency ANI reported.
The viral video shows these boys hanging on the door of the train and cheering and shouting. However, as the train passes through a station, one of the boys is seen snatching away a phone from the hands of a passenger on the platform.
