Services were disrupted on the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro on Tuesday morning due to a technical glitch, leaving many passengers stranded. Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in the city to Huda City Centre in Gurgaon. Due to the snag, commuters had a hard time reaching their destination and many passengers were stranded at the Qutub Minar station.
"Due to a technical snag at Chattarpur, train services have been affected on the Yellow Line. The issue is being rectified," a senior DMRC official said.
Trains are being run in following loops temporarily -- between Huda City Centre and Sultanpur and between Samaypur Badli and Qutub Minar, he said.
"There will be no train movement between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar," he said.
Earlier, a man hailing from Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district was apprehended by the CISF at a Delhi Metro station for allegedly masquerading as a CRPF jawan, a senior official said on Sunday, April 28. Nadeem Khan, donning a khaki uniform of the CRPF, was intercepted at the Chandni Chowk station on Saturday, April 27 as his activities were found to be suspicious.
“Upon enquiry, the man did not give any satisfactory reply and was not having any force ID card or any proof of being a force member,” a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) official said.
The man claimed he was a trainee at the Central Reserve Police Force training force in Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir and that he on way to Shamli for his mother’s final rites, he said.
A check with the CRPF centre in Srinagar and Shamli police found both his claims to be false.
The man’s physical search led to the recovery of two Aadhaar cards with different dates of birth, father’s name and addresses and a mobile phone, he said. The man has been handed over to the Delhi Police to further probe the case and find out his motive, he said.
