Namma Metro services stopped dead in their tracks, literally, here on Wednesday as a technical snag disrupted operations for about half an hour. Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) officials said six trips were affected in the afternoon.
A BMRCL press release said that at about 12.47 p.m., a technical snag was detected at the M.G. Road metro station due to which the train could not be operated on both the lines (M.G. Road and Byappanahalli).
Six trips were cancelled between 12.47 p.m. and 1.17 p.m. A single line operation resumed from Byappanahalli at 1.17 p.m.
Services were fully restored at 2.10 p.m.
As many as 63 people had bought tickets and the BMRCL refunded Rs. 867 to them, according to the press release.
