What tricks do you use to block the door?
On Monday, a woman tried to enter the coach at GTB Nagar metro station when the gates were closing. The woman kept dragging for some time, her coat got stuck between the doors. But he survived.

If the door remains closed continuously. Then the door opens. And it continues like this. The train does not run in such circumstances. Then the train operator comes. And closes the door.
