Power glitch leads to chaos in Metro during peak hours 2.1.2018 Deccan Herald - State
Disruption in power supply brought Metro trains to a halt in the underground section of the Purple Line, leaving some passengers in a state of panic during rush hours on Tuesday. The delays caused massive crowding at stations. While some trains stopped at the station, others stopped in the tunnel where commuters suffered the most. Riders in a hurry to reach their workplaces could not communicate due to lack of mobile network in the underground sections. A crowded train stopped at Cubbon Park station at 10.17 am. Even as commuters were wondering about the doors not opening, they began to feel suffocated as the air-conditioning went off. Some staff in the station told commuters to press the emergency button next to the door. The doors finally opened, much to their relief. "I was travelling from Vijayanagar to MG Road, which usually takes 16 minutes. Today, I got on the 10.02 am train and it was 10.39 when I reached MG Road. The train got stuck for 10 minutes at Kempegowda station and in the tunnel before ...
