Thousands of passengers on board metro trains and stations on the Dwarka line were stranded for over 45 minutes after the doors of a brand new Bombardier train failed to open at the Kirti Nagar station causing anxious moments.

Around six trains on the overcrowded Dwarka Sec-9 — Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar line were stranded at various stations as thousands of passengers waited for the trains.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation officials said their attempts to open the doors proved futile. Luckily the doors opened after five minutes.

The officials said the passengers were then de-boarded from the train, which was sent to Kirti Nagar siding for inspection.

This is the second such incident in three days. The doors of a train got stuck at the Central Secretariat station on Friday.

The incident led to a huge delay in services .

Long queues were seen at Rajiv Chowk and other inter-section stations with passengers seeking ticket refunds.
