After first run, Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express returns with broken screens and headphones stolen

Capable of running at the speed of 200 kmph, the Tejas Express has several unique features such as automatic doors, 9-inch infotainment screens etc.

The Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express, India’s first high-speed semi-luxurious train, returned to Mumbai, in a mess after some passengers thrashed the LCD screens, stole headphones and littered the entire train. This came as a shock for everybody, especially railway authorities, following which they have now appealed to passengers to safeguard the Tejas Express and treat it like their own property.

The train was flagged off from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus on Monday and returned from Goa on Tuesday.

The Central Railway’s chief public relations officer, Narendra Patil, confirmed the railway staff reported that “a few headphones” were missing from the train after Monday’s journey, according to a Mumbai Mirror report.

Capable of running at the speed of 200 kmph, the Tejas Express has several unique features such as automatic doors, 9-inch infotainment screens for each seat, tea-coffee vending machines, vaccuum bio-toilets, touch-free water taps in toilet and secured gangway.

After the news of what the passengers had done to the Tejas Express, broke, the Twitterati lost its cool and took to Twitter to express their displeasure over the incident:

According to a Hindustan Times report, a passenger, who travelled on the train on the second day, said the train was not properly cleaned.

According to a Deccan Chronicle report, Railway activist Nirmal Tikamgarh and ex-Divisional Railway User Consultative Committee, who was also present at the inauguration which saw the train set off on its maiden journey on May 22 from Mumbai, says that any kind of littering or acts of vandalism should not be tolerated by the railway authorities.

“If this kind of vandalism continues, the railways will think twice before starting any such trains,” he reportedly added.
