Also, during the festive season railway stations saw heavy footfall during the Diwali days, as travellers were in abundance, as all of them were exercising to go back home to celebrate the festival. The scenes at the platform were chaotic. The rush meant that not everyone would get the chance to board the train. A similar incident came to light via the social media platform X, where a traveller Anshul Sharma shared his experience. Well, Sharma has a confirmed ticket for an AC coach, but the crowd jammed the gates and didn’t let him board the train. Therefore, Sharma took it to X, asking for a full refund of this ticket.
