Kolkata: Metro rail services were
disrupted for over an hour on Friday due to a crack on the down
track near Kalighat station.

A Metro rail spokesman said that a motorman detected
the crack on the track near Kalighat station when the train
was moving from Kalighat to Rabindra Sarovar station.

He immediately stopped the train, contacted the
control room and railway engineers were engaged in repair job.

As a precautionary measure, the Metro rail authorities
suspended services between Maidan and Mahanayak UttamKumar
stations from 3.21 pm. However, services were maintained on
other routes.

Normal services in the entire stretch were restored at
4.35 pm.

The spokesman said that the crack was caused due to
temperature variation.
