Can anybody tell , if any train till now has received , the PUSH-PULL WAP 5 ?

I mean it has already been probably a year since they were rolled out by CLW and we have not seen them in action.

CSMT rajdhani had trial runs with WAP 5 in push pull, and I think a commercial run too with it, but nothing permanent.
Ironically, the best time in trial was achieved with P5 push pull, as it could do 160 in AGC-NZM section.

On trial, not in commercial runs
I am not sure whether it was tejas livery or not
See the images attached, in both image arrival at AGC is same ie 14:55, but in one case, where booked speed is 160 NZM arrival is at 17:00, while with 130 booked speed NZM arrival is 17:11. Also you can see specific energy consumption figures, for 160 run it is close to 31 units per 1000 GTKM, while for 130 run it is around 25, an almost 20% increase in energy consumption at that speed.

To be fair not a bad deal though.
He got out of HJP/ECR to UBL/SWR, I'd take that transfer in a heartbeat
Few years back, when there is a massive rail roko by people in Badlapur (near mumbai, on the mumbai pune line) the then DRM of mumbai was transfered to Khurda road, a place most of us wouldn't be able to point on map without help. This one seems mild in comparison to that :p

In reality it becomes something of a sinkhole.
The energy consumption, and somewhat ironically, the cost if operation of passenger train that stops everywhere is actually higher than that of rajdhani.
For instance, mumbai rajdhani has an SEC of around 16 units per 1000 gtkm. This means, on average, across its trip to Delhi, the train needs 16 units of electricity to haul 1000 tons by 1 km. The same SEC value for EMU in mumbai is roughly 2.5 times higher, or almost 40 units per 1000 gtkm. The same happens in bihar,
and indeed everywhere else. These everywhere stopping trains have a higher cost of operations than the ones with fewer stops, and yet when railway complies to their demand rather than following the rules people try to save few more rupees by not purchasing tickets at all!!!
It's no wonder IR is so reluctant to give halt to trains nowadays.

NCR vs ECR debates which used to end with one group ganging up against others and giving en masse objections :D :D
Then there used to be other drama every tuesday :D
You'd be hard pressed to find any one member who has a blemish free past here :p

The problem was he was trying to earn money by means of official resources.
You may have probably heard of a railfan called Syed Zohaibullah. He is a very famous RF, known for his absolutely stunning pics of Konkan Railway. Back in 2018 when he was active he had given a link for a calendar of his containing his pics. I don't know what fee he wanted (if any) but he had to quickly change the post to avoid action from admins. You can see the post at this link: /blog/post/1659212
case is mentioned was much milder than the IRTTC one, as in this case Syed Zohaibullah was using his own pics, not someone else's. On other hand, railtracker was using content that is publicly not available, obtained almost certainly from his contacts in IR. Now this itself is quite shady, but rather prevalent too as many (including yours truly) has contacts in IR who give inside scoop routinely. However most of us don't share the info publicly, and for those who do, we rarely put our own watermark on it to pass it off as our own, and definitely don't try to earn ad revenue from it. That thing is liable to be prosecuted, and the site acting as an interface for it makes it liable for getting prosecuted too.
Better to not play with fire in these times.

What you are trying to highlight is a good practical demonstration of 'Twada kutta Tommy, sada kutta kutta' :D
