Delhi Metro runs with doors open

New Delhi: If one says the train ran with the doors open, there’s nothing new. But if one says the Delhi metro train ran with its doors open, it’s something very alarming. In a major safety lapse, a Delhi Metro train had its gates open as it travelled between two stations on the Yellow Line on Thursday morning.

According to reports, the gates were open for one minute 25 seconds as the train travelled between Arjangarh and Ghitorini stations on Line-2 (HUDA City Centre to Jahangirpuri).

In a statement, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said “prima facie, it appeared an error by the train operator and he has been suspended with immediate effect.”

The matter is being investigated, the statement added.
