A hardcore pornographic clip was played out on a giant screen at its busiest in the heart of the national capital. The incident made the people of Delhi Metro embarrassed and shocked its commuters.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) claimed being “unaware” about the video played on the giant screen showing explicit clip that went viral on Saturday. They place the responsibility on a private contractor whom they entrusted with installing the screen meant fir displaying advertisements.
The video showed the clip was played on the screen with commuters passing by the screen in usual hurry. Some of them stopped to record it on their mobile phones. The 25 second video widely spread on social media networks.

The incident has attracted hilarious reactions on Twitter with some targeting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Shri Kejriwal said ‘As a IIT Engineer I can tell you 10 ways hack EVM’. He proved it by hacking Rajiv Chowk station & Played his fav video,” posted a user.
“Porn clip played on screens at Rajiv Chowk. Now if THIS doesn’t get Delhiites to use public transport, nothing will,” said another.
“The video at rajiv chowk is nothing but personification of what Modi is doing to India,” twitted a user.
A similar incident took place at a bus stand in Kerela’s Wayanad district in June 2015.
The incident made headlines in a country where talk about sex or even public displays of affection are seen by many as taboo.
Mainstream cinema is stripped of raunchiness by India’s socially-conservative censor board, which muted the word “lesbian” from a Hindi-language film.
It has also blocked the release of a toned-down version of the erotic movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” in 2015, and deemed two James Bond kissing scenes unsuitable for an Indian audience.
