A video has gone viral on social media in which a youtuber was seen igniting a firecracker on the railway tracks near the Dantra Station at the Ajmer- Phulera section. The video shows the Youtuber lighting up the black snake firecracker on the railway tracks that resulted in lingered black smoke in the air.
A man took the whole incident to his official X account and said that such incidents can have serious life consequences as it is very unsafe to light up any such firecrackers on the railway line.
He wrote, “YouTuber bursting crackers on Railway Tracks!!

After this, the North Western Railways replied to his post and asked the concerned authorities to take appropriate action.
