Delhi Metro news: A panic was triggered in a train on Delhi's metro's Blue line on Monday as one of the coaches witnessed a spark. The visuals from the train show passengers escaping through the emergency exit close to Yamuna bank metro station. 

Blue Line connects Dwarka Sector-21 in Delhi and Noida Electronic City, along with a branch line to Vaishali. The spark resulted in a halt of the metro midway, and there was a commotion due to the technical difficulty. 

Commuters faced hardship and huge swarms of crowd were seen at several stations, particularly at Indraprastha metro station.

DMRC's statement

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) issued a statement on the matter and said that there is a delay in services. "Train services between Yamuna Bank and Indraprastha stations of the Blue Line were affected from 6.35 PM to 8 PM today to undertake repair work of a broken contact wire (part of OHE or overhead equipment) on the Up Line (going towards Dwarka) due to some external object (bird) hitting the OHE/pantograph of the train," the DMRC said in a statement.

The entire Blue Line was impacted in this period due to the snag in the OHE at the Yamuna Bank segment. Trains were run at a slower speed than usual in this duration. The DMRC said that during this period of about 90 minutes, train services were temporarily not available between Indraprastha and Yamuna Bank stations due to the absence of OHE resulting from the breakdown of contact wire due to bird hit.

 

A shuttle train service was provided to allow commuting of passengers between Indraprastha and Yamuna Bank stations during this period, officials said. Normal services on the entire Blue Line from Dwarka Sec-21 to Noida Electronic City/Vaishali was resumed from 8 PM onwards," the DMRC said.
