Commuters left fuming as trains on Mumbai's Harbour Line suffer delays
The delay took place around 1745hrs, just when the evening rush hour had inched towards its peak traffic times.
Peak hour rail traffic on Mumbai's Harbour Line was held up for close to an hour on Monday evening, reportedly due to lack of electricity supply.
While there was no word from Railway authorities regarding the reason for the abrupt halt, commuters were left frustrated and many took to Twitter to register their grievance.

Trains aren't going towards CST on Harbour line. No buses. Heavy taxi rates on Ola and Uber. What's wrong? @WeAreMumbai @InfoMumbai
