A 65 year-old woman was permitted to carry an axe on the Delhi Metro, and tried attacking a woman with it inside a ladies' compartment train, the Indian Express reports.
The incident took place at Hauz Khas Metro station in South Delhi, the Indian Express reported.
"While the axe was detected at X-Ray scanners by a CISF [Central Industrial Security Force] personnel at the entry, he probably considered her age and allowed her to take it along. He probably also misjudged her plea to let her carry the axe, a masonry tool,
because she told him she was a poor woman. An inquiry has been ordered," an official said, according to the Indian Express.
The CISF, the force in charge of the Delhi Metro's security, suspended the personnel who permitted her to pass, reports the Indian Express.
The woman carrying the axe, a resident of Gurgaon, got into an argument in the ladies' compartment with a fellow passenger over seating, the Indian Express reports.
Sources told the Indian Express that as soon as the 65-year-old woman pulled out the axe, she was overpowered by other passengers.
