Lucknow: Some members of the Samajwadi Party on Wednesday clashed with security officials after they were allegedly stopped from boarding the newly inaugurated Lucknow metro.

According to ANI, the incident took place in Lucknow's Transport Nagar.

The security forces resorted to mild lathicharge to disperse the SP workers.

The incident occurred on a day when the much-awaited Lucknow Metro rail, which was opened for public today, developed some major fault.

The second Metro train got stuck at the Mawaiya's special span near Alambagh station because of a technical glitch.

The passengers stuck inside the metro started panicking as the AC and the lights went off.

The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) officials reached the spot and fixed the problem.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had inaugurated the first service of Lucknow Metro on Tuesday at the Transport Nagar Railway Station.

The first trial run of Lucknow Metro was held on December 1, 2016.
