New Delhi:

Delhi Metro service was disrupted on Thursday after a boundary wall fell on the tracks between Jangpura and Lajpat Nagar metro stations due to heavy winds and rain, an official said.

"A portion of a railing on the ramp (when train comes out from underground Jangpura station towards elevated Lajpat Nagar station) fell on the tracks (going towards Faridabad) between Lajpat Nagar and Jangpura sections around 4:05 pm due to heavy rains and wind," a senior DMRC official said.

Services are being run in two loops, the official said, adding all passengers are safe.

“The incident took place around 4 pm and services are being run in two loops- Nehru Place to Escorts Mujesar; and Central Secretariat to Kashmere Gate, till the railing is removed. After the incident, the approaching train, moving towards Lajpat Nagar station, was put on hold due to this obstruction. All passengers were safely taken to Lajpat Nagar station," he added.

“The overhead electricity (OHE) supply had been put off between Central Secretariat and Nehru Place sections on the corridor to remove the railing” the DMRC official said.
