New Delhi: Delhi Metro has penalised 295 men during the past one week for travelling in the women's coaches on Metro trains.

Eleven special flying squads, comprising a station manager, Delhi Metro Rail police staff, security controller and two security guards, that fanned across all six operational lines of the Delhi Metro since Friday last also counselled 2,016 persons in this regard.

The special drive was conducted for a week following complaints from women passengers regarding entry and misbehaviour by male passengers inside the ladies coach in recent days.

As part of the drive, the flying squads travelled on trains and conducted surprise checks to ensure that women commuters feel safe and comfortable while travelling in the Metro even during late hours.

119 men were penalised for the offence on Rithala-Dilshad Garden line, 83 on Gurgaon Line, 53 on Noida and 40 on Badarpur line, a DMRC spokesman said.
