Snag hits Blue Line

Metro services on the Blue Line — Dwarka Sector 21 to Noida City Centre — were affected on Saturday for around 45 minutes due to a technical glitch, causing hardship to commuters.

The snag occurred when the pantograph, which supplies power from the overhead wire to the train, got entangled in overhead equipment (OHE) of a train between Rajiv Chowk and R.K Ashram section, while approaching Rajiv Chowk station at 9.20 am.

The Delhi Metro informed that after restoration work, normal service resumed at 10.05 a.m.
