Fact Check: Does This Video Show Loco Pilots Of Vande Bharat Express? Here’s The Truth 


A video circulating on social media portrays two women strolling along a railway platform towards a train, accompanied by Bollywood music playing in the background. It’s claimed that these women are the loco pilots of India’s Vande Bharat Express.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Vande Bharath Train Loco Pilots Crew… Could you have ever imagined this amazing scene ? From the coal-fired engine drivers to this airline style engine crew. All women”. 

Here’s the link to the above post


NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE. 

Through a reverse image search, we located the same video uploaded on Instagram by a user Shijina Rajan (@travelling_tte) on September 24.

Rajan’s Instagram bio indicates that she serves as a TTE (Travelling Ticket Examiner) with the Indian Railways. Her profile contains numerous videos and photos showcasing her experiences in this role. 

We also came across a YouTube video showcasing both Shijina Rajan and the second TTE. This video was uploaded on April 25, 2023, under the title ‘Athlete TTEs of Vande Bharat’ by a channel named ‘Tech Travel Eat Shorts’.

Thus, it is evident from the above information that the viral video does not show loco pilots of Vande Bharat Express.
