CHENNAI: Chennai Metro Rail will be sensitising its guards on religious issues, after reports that one of them asked a Sikh passenger to remove his turban. Tandeep Singh, a senior engineer working with a company in Tada, was enjoying his first metro rail ride on Monday, when the incident happened. Tandeep boarded the train at Vadapalani to travel up to Alandur.
