"An incident occurred yesterday at 3:45 pm at Kalindi Kunj Depot of Line-8, in which a train, which was under complete control of Hyundai ROTEM for commissioning was moved perhaps inadvertently in reverse direction by the ROTEM staff. Responsibility for the incident is of ROTEM and prima facie it appears to be negligence on part of the ROTEM staff. However detailed inquiry is being conducted by ROTEM to look into this lapse and for suitable action," read the statement.
