New Delhi, May 21: Hundreds of commuters had a tough time during rush hour on Tuesday after services were affected on the Yellow Line of the Delhi Metro due to a technical glitch. Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in the city to Huda City Centre in Gurgaon. According to Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), a "repair work is in progress between Qutub Minar and Chhattarpur metro stations".
The technical snag occurred at Chhattarpur following which Delhi Metro services between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar stations were suspended temporarily. "Two maintenance teams of DMRC technicians consisting of 16 officials worked urgently to rectify the problem. Temporary restoration has been completed and trains are expected to run at restricted speed between Chhattarpur and Qutub Minar soon," the DMRC said in a tweet.
