The Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express was on Friday stopped at Dadri in Uttar Pradesh after a person tweeted '5 bombs in Dibrugarh Rajdhani'.
A Twitter user Sanjeev Singh Gurjar claimed that the Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express had 5 bombs. At 4:12 pm, he tweeted, "I want to inform that there are 5 bombs in a train rajdhani(12424) going from new delhi to kanpur central. Please take some action on this quickly."
However, Gurjar posted another tweet at 7:16 pm. In this tweet, he apologized to the Indian government, saying that the earlier tweet was due to mental pressure. Gurjar added that he was angry because his brother's train was 4 hours late.
"Ye tweet mere dwara maansik tanav ki sthiti me kiya gaya tha, aaj mere bhai ki train 4 hr late ho gyi thi, jisse mujhe boht gussa tha, me iske liye bharat sarkar se maafi chahta hu," he wrote.
Twitter lashed out at Sanjeev Singh Gurjar after his apology. A Twitter user wrote, "This guy took the entire @RailMinIndia for a ride.. a Rajdhani Express train had to be stopped because of his idiocy!" Another user said, "Please arrest this guy to misuse the very platform which has been used by millions to seek genuine help."
