An individual wrote, “The question is when will Indian Railways enforce the rule so that people with waitlisted tickets are not able to travel in trains. What is the point of buying a confirmed ticket when you will not get your seat."

A second shared, "There needs to be a mandatory ticket checking before one enters the railway station. This is happening throughout the country."

"Were they evicted out of the train? They shouldn't have been allowed on the train without proper tickets," posted a third.

A fourth added, "Sad to see this."
