A video of a monkey cavorting and roaming around in coaches of a Delhi Metro train before settling on a seat, is going viral on social media, drawing mirth from the netizens. The video surfaced on social media on Saturday purportedly showing the monkey roaming around and then climbing onto the handrail bar before traipsing to the neighbouring coach.

The monkey was spotted inside a train on the Delhi Metro's blue line between Yamuna Bank and Indraprastha stations, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said on Sunday. DMRC officials said that the monkey was spotted inside a train coach of the Metro around 4:45 pm on Saturday.

The two-minute-long video attracted over 1,500 views till Sunday afternoon since it was uploaded on Twitter.

The train was moving towards the Indraprashta Station and by the time it was brought to DMRC's notice, the simian had scampered away, officials said. "No harm was caused to any passenger and it was not seen thereafter in the metro premises," DMRC officials said.

The clip has been widely shared on social media platforms and has gone viral now. In the video, shared by a user on Twitter, this unexpected visitor can be seen roaming around in the carriage and eventually settling on a seat next to a commuter.

The monkey sits quietly for some time and even rests his limb on the thigh of the commuter, and later begins to curiously look outside as the train gathers speed, passing through vegetation of the areas near river Yamuna.

His acts left the commuters amazed and intrigued as animals and pets are strictly prohibited on trains. One commuter in the video can be heard saying, "give a mask to him too".

Delhi Metro services are operating since June 7 after the lockdown, but with strict Covid safety norms, and just 50 per cent of seating capacity, with standing not allowed for commuters.
