Thousands stranded as metro services hit on Yellow Line

A technical issue disrupted services on Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line for at least four hours, leaving thousands of passengers stranded on the road.

Trains on the line that connects Huda City Centre in Gurgaon to Samaypur Badli in the city, running a distance of 49 km, stalled at 9.32 am and normal services resumed only after 1.30 pm.
Services were hit due to a breakdown of the overhead wire (OHE) at Sultanpur station, midway between Gurgaon and Delhi, leading to power supply tripping in the section, DMRC officials said.
There was no train movement between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar in the morning rush hours.
Passengers of the two trains which were passing through the section at the time were asked to deboard and services were resumed by running trains in short loops, officials said.
After nearly three-and-a-half hours of chaos, end-to-end services were partially restored with trains plying between Qutub Minar and Sultanpur stations with lower frequency, In another 30 minutes, normal services resumed, they said.
