When we started investigating the video, a clue was found in this video itself. It became clear that the viral video is from Mumbai only. On the basis of this clue, we contacted the railway officials, then we were told that the video is not recent but quite old. Then action was also taken by the police against the stunt boys. During the investigation, we found a video uploaded on YouTube on 30 August 2011… the description of which informed that these boys performed dangerous stunts on the Mumbai Harbor Line, during the distance between Sewri to Ray Road. Similarly, the distance between these two stations was about 3 kilometers. After the video surfaced, the RPF had identified these boys.
