A video went viral on social media of a man stuck in the newly inaugurated Vande Bharat express and had to pay the fair till the next station. On January 16, a man entered the recently launched Vande Bharat express as it stopped at Rajahmundry station to take a few selfies and other photographs.

In a statement, the Chief Public Relations Officer (PRO) of South Central Railway said, “The incident had taken place on January 16 where a man got into Vande Bharat Express train at Rajahmundry Railway Station to take a selfie. While he was de-boarding, the automatic doors closed, and the train was heading to its next stop, i.e. Vishakapatnam. The Officials noticed him, and on confrontation, he said the same. He then paid the fare to travel to Vishakapatnam. And from there, he left. There was no penalty or fine imposed on the man. Not aware as to how he travelled back to Rajahmundry.”
