When the fight got nastier, one woman took off her top which is when she was calmed down by one of the male passengers. Still agitated, the woman challenged them for a fight.
The reason for the brawl is vague however initial reports say it was due to seats.

Arnold Mutombo, a member of Association of African Students in India told Asian Age, “I have seen the video and found it disturbing. Irrespective of any community, race, religion and region, a woman must be treated with dignity and respect. Here in this video, these two women were ill treated by the crowd. It is painful and raises the question of the civil society here. We are also human beings and have the equal rights to live with peace and dignity. Such incidents should not take place anywhere in India or any party of world.”
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said that they not received any complaint against this issue. The spokesperson siad that DMRC has not received any complaint on this issue, which seems to have been sorted out among the passengers. In case any issue is brought, the DMRC takes appropriate action.
Delhi Metro is not new to controversies. Last month a video footage of a hard-core pornographic clip showing on a giant screen at the busy Rajiv Chowk Metro station in Delhi went viral leaving the DMRC red-faced and looking for answers.
