Harikant Sharma /Agra. Vande Bharat, the country’s most beautiful and luxury train known for its speed, has caught the eye of stone pelters. A startling news related to the country’s fastest semi-high speed Vande Bharat has come to the fore. Stone pelters target the train between Delhi Nizamuddin to Agra. This train was flagged off by the country’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Bhopal two months back.
The windows of this train have been targeted several times during the last two months. More than 30 windows have been broken by pelting stones. Many have been changed. Work is being done by putting transparent tapes on many windows, but the question is, who are these people who are playing with the country’s heritage? Stones are being pelted on the country’s most beautiful and speedy train.
Vande Bharat train’s broken glasses have been replaced many times

Along with this, glasses of more than 16 windows have been replaced in Bhopal.
Stone pelting on Vande Bharat is unfortunate
In the evening, the Vande Bharat train travels from Nizamuddin to Bhopal. Meanwhile, the team of News18 local reached Agra Cantt railway station and took stock of the situation and found that many glasses are still broken.
