In a bizarre incident that left many commuters shocked and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporatin red faced, a big LED television screen intended to play commercials in Delhi's Rajiv Chowk Metro Station, started playing a porn clip in full public view.

According to reports, the clip was played for just under a minute before the feed was again changed back to the usual in Rajiv Chowk station, one of the busiest stations in the Delhi metro network.

Here is a video of the incident, shot by a commuter, which went viral on social media:
