 Bystanders were baffled when pornography played on screens at a train station in the Indian state of Bihar.

An adult film appeared on Patna railway station’s televisions for three minutes at around 9:30 a.m. local time on Sunday, according to India Times.

Footage from the incident was posted on social media, with the obscene portions blurred out.

People at the station, appalled after pornography began playing in full view of children, filed a complaint with the Government Railway Police (GRP) and Railway Protection Force (RPF), per the outlet. (RELATED: Seven States Move Toward Mandatory Age-Verification For Pornography)

Action was delayed by the GRP, prompting the RPF to contact Dutta Communication, the agency responsible for airing advertisements on the station’s screens, to stop the condemnable clip from playing, India Times noted. Railway officials also terminated their contract with Dutta Communication, the outlet reorted.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the station operator, who fled the scene after the incident, according to Business Today.

“We have initiated an inquiry into the incident and started the process of cancellation of contract. We have registered an FIR against the company officials. It is an intolerable incident. We will blacklist this company,” said Prabhat Kumar, the official spokesperson of the DRM office in Danapur, per the outlet.

A similar incident occurred last year in Mumbai, when an LED display board flashed the message “smoke weed everyday” to witnesses on the road, according to India Today.
