BENGALURU: In a shameful incident, a man was barred from entering the Bengaluru metro for undoing two buttons on his shirt. It was Doddakallasandra, who was stopped by the Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) officials.

According to reports, Doddakallasandra was warned by the officials to come clean and scrupulous, to be allowed to enter the metro station. Seeing this issue unfold, the irked passengers came in aid for Doddakallasandra and arranged all means for him to travel. One passenger meanwhile, captured the incident on his phone and shared it through X, which later turned viral.

However, the metro officials denied discrimination based on shabby clothes but said that they feared the man to be in an inebriated condition. The search was made to protect the safety of other passengers including women in the metro.

Earlier too, the BMRCL courted controversy after they stopped a farmer from entering the metro. The farmer was in his traditional attire and was carrying a bag on his head. After the incident became much discussed, the security guard who stopped the farmer was fired.
