Recently, a video got uploaded on Twitter and also broadcasted on NHK showed a steady stream of people running away from train cars where seconds later, a small explosion caused a fire. The suspense situation happened in Tokyo. In the commotion, a 24-year-old man dressed in Batman’s Joker costume has attacked passengers on a Tokyo train line on Sunday evening, injuring 17 people as many party-goers headed into the city center for Halloween gatherings.
The attack has occurred on the Keio express line bound for Shinjuku. It is indeed the world’s busiest rail station, at around 8 p.m. Partial service on the Keio line remained suspended late on Sunday when Japanese voters went to the polls in a lower house election. The horrific incident was a very frightening scene to look at especially on Halloween.

Police have arrested the suspected attacker on the spot. According to media, a man believed to be in his 60s was unconscious and in critical condition after being stabbed, while witnesses also said the attacker had spread fluid around the train and started a fire. It can be seen in the video that all of the passengers in the particular train rushed to squeeze out of the train’s windows and then onto the platform where the train had made an emergency stop.
Another video on Twitter showed a bespectacled man dressed in a purple suit and bright green shirt, as worn by the Joker, seated in an empty train puffing on a cigarette, his legs crossed and looking calm. He was surrounded by law enforcement. The media reported the suspect told that he “wanted to kill people so he could be sentenced to death”.
