Metro services were briefly delayed on a section of Delhi Metro’s Blue Line after a man allegedly jumped on tracks at Kaushambi Station on Wednesday.
Kaushambi station falls in Ghaziabad on the Yamuna Bank-Vaishali branch section of the Blue Line. ‘From 9.56 to 10.03 am, metro services were slightly affected on Line-3/4 (Blue Line) due to a male passenger who allegedly jumped on tracks at Kaushambi station, when a train, going towards Dwarka, was approaching a platform,’ a DMRC official said. However, the passenger was rescued and services were resumed soon after.
Further, services were delayed also due to technical snags on sections of different corridors of the Delhi Metro. There was slow movement of trains between Tis Hazari and Shastri Park and later also on Pitampura-Keshav Puram section of the Red Line in the morning, DMRC officials said.
On the Blue Line, delay in service took place between Dwarka and Kirti Nagar due to a technical snag on the section, officials said.
There was a delay in service from Ghevra to Inderlok and Kirti Nagar stations on the Green Line, the official added. Ashok Park Main to Kirti Nagar also faced delay in services but the normalcy was restored later.
There was delay in services between Shaheed Sthal and Rithala section of the Red Line too, and normal services were later resumed.
Delay in service also occurred between Noida Electronic City and Akshardham in the evening.
