New Delhi: Passengers on a Delhi Metro got stuck inside a train for over 45 minutes on Sunday after the train stopped abruptly near the Rajiv Chowk station due to power failure leading to disruption of service on Line 3.

The train services on the Line (Yamuna Bank – Dwarka Sector 9) were affected for about 1 hour and 41 minutes from 3:15 PM to 4:56 PM due to the auxilary power system failure in one of the newly introduced trains running on Line 3, a DMRC spokesman said.

The train got stuck between Rajiv Chowk and Ramakrishna Ashram Marg stations.

"As a result the traction motor of this train was not powering," he said, adding that the next train which was immediately following behind and was at Rajiv Chowk was cleared off passengers. It was then used as a rescue train to recover the affected train after track clearance was given at 4:20 PM.
