The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) informed people on Monday the monkey who was caught riding the metro recently crept into the train at Akshardham station. To that DMRC added that it is in conversation with the forest department to come up with a standard operating procedure to handle unanticipated situations such as this one.
The monkey had a joy ride on the metro for a minimum of 3-4 minutes mentioned the DMRC. It added to that by mentioning that the staff took swift action soon after receiving the information about the monkey and the train was evacuated as the next station approached.
The event was described by a few metro travelers and they mentioned that the monkey sat quietly for some time and at some point even rested his limb on the thigh of a commuter, and proceeded to curiously look outside as the train gained speed.
