The DMRC, in an official statement, said, “Train services on Line-8 (Magenta) between Kalkaji and RK Puram section were affected on Sunday from 8.55 am to 11 am due to motoring problem being reported from a train at Chirag Delhi-(UP platform-going towards Janakpuri West).” Official further said that after the local troubleshooting measures, the train was withdrawn from service after deboarding its passengers at Chirag Delhi to avoid further delay on the Line and sent to the depot for investigation. “During this period, services were running normal between Janakpuri West and R K Puram section as one loop and Kalkaji Mandir to Botanical Garden section as another loop. Whereas, connectivity was provided on the affected section between Kalkaji Mandir to RK Puram section on single line during the period,” it also stated.
