According to officials of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, the doors refused to open despite their efforts. To their relief the doors opened up after five minutes and the passengers were de-boarded from the train.
They added that the train was sent to Kirti Nagar siding for inspection.
The incident resulted in nearly 6 trains on the Dwarka Sec-9 — Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar line being stranded for over 45 minutes.
In a similar incident on Friday, Feb 5, passengers were stranded at the Central Secretariat station when the doors of the train failed to open.
Passengers formed queues at the Rajiv Chowk and other inter-section stations, seeking refund of their tickets as the services were delayed.
