Drunkards want Metro to allow them to travel on board
| Sunday | 17th November, 2019
It is a different matter that several representations have been made requesting HMRL to allow even drunk passengers to board the train.
In fact, I get a lot of requests to be a bit liberal to allow passengers who have consumed limited alcohol to travel by Metro as drunk driving is not allowed by police in Hyderabad.
In fact Section 59 of Chapter IX of Metro Railway (Operations and Maintenance) Act, 2002, authorizes a Metro official to throw out a person trying to take a ride under the influence of alcohol.
A video clip of a person creating nuisance in a train in drunken condition is being circulated on social media.
Meanwhile, as per liquor policy, commuters would be allowed to carry up to two bottles on the Metro, only if they are sealed.
