Shocking: Delhi Metro runs with open door in a dark tunnel

New Delhi, Sep 12: A major accident was averted and the passengers commuting from the Delhi Metro had a narrow escape. At around 10 pm Delhi Metro ran with its doors open between Chawri Bazar and Kashmiri Gate stations on the yellow line.

This is the time when the traders and shopkeepers are returning home after closing down their shops in Chandani Chownk, one of the biggest trading centers and wholesale market of Asia.

A metro train, packed with commuters, made its way across two stations on Yellow Line on Monday, with one of its gates open. The unusual incident took place around 10 pm between Chawri Bazar and Kashmere Gate stations of Yellow Line, which connects north Delhi to Gurgaon. "The problem was only with one door. It was guarded by the DMRC staff. The train was taken to Vishwavidyalaya station to avoid any delay or bunching," a metro spokesman said.
