Metro services delayed after passenger passes out
Delhi Metro services were delayed during Monday’s morning peak hours as a commuter aboard a Noida-bound train fainted at the Ramesh Nagar Metro station. “A passenger had fainted at the Ramesh Nagar Metro station of the Blue Line and required assistance. That caused a slight delay and there was no technical problem,” according to a DMRC official. “The incident occurred at 8.52 am and the train could move forward only after the passenger was deboarded. The process caused a delay of six minutes,” he added. The episode created a huge hassle for the commuters as the short delay was followed by an extremely tardy service. Commuters got frustrated by long waiting times for trains of the Blue line that comprises of two corridors — from Dwarka Sector 21 to Noida City Centre and Dwarka Sector 21 to Vaishali. They complained that the Metro at times did not run alternate services for Noida and Vaishali. Commuters also complained that travelling by the Blue line during peak hours in the morning and evening was getting to be tiring.
