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.

The delay took place around 1745hrs, just when the evening rush hour had inched towards its peak traffic times. According to local reports, trains on the Harbour Line were held up for close to an hour. This also led to crowding of railway stations with more and more passengers assembling here.
