"The track circuit is responsible for maintaining a uniform speed of the trains on the track. When it dropped, the drivers had to manually drive the trains at a lower speed, which caused the gap in frequency of trains," a Delhi Metro official told IANS. The fault was corrected within an hour and the trains' frequency and speed was back to normal by 10.15 a.m.
