Metro commuters irked as Yellow Line service halt for 15 minutes
Metro services on the Yellow Line connecting Samaypur Badli to HUDA City Center, were briefly halted during the peak morning hours on Wednesday as the driver of the train raised doubts over its functioning.
The service was later resumed following a delay of 15 minutes.
However, two metro stations at New Delhi and Tilak Nagar had reportedly flooded with the rain water.
The metro train heading towards the HUDA City Centre was halted at the Civil Lines station on the route for around 15 minutes for 'troubleshooting' purposes which led to the "brief delay", a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official said.
"The driver had some doubts about train functioning. It was stopped at the Civil Lines station around 9:30 am," said the official.
He said "no technical problem was detected" and the train left the station after the driver's doubts were cleared.
Following the incident, commuters started tweeting regarding the delay.
One Haidar Ali Khan tweeted: "Delays and technical snags have become synonymous to Delhi Metro but who cares."
Another commuter, Sanjeev Pandey in a tweet said, " It was most frustrated ride ever".
Pandey boarded the metro from GTB Nagar Metro Station at 9:35 am and reached Vishwavidyalaya Metro Station at 10:20 am.
