Thousands of passengers on board metro trains and stations on the Dwarka line were stranded for over 45 minutes after the doors of a train failed to open at the Kirti Nagar station causing anxious moments for people.

Around six trains on the overcrowded Dwarka Sec-9 -- Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar line got stranded at various stations for over 45 minutes as thousands of passengers waited for the trains.

The doors of a brand-new Bombardier train failed to open at the Kirti Nagar Metro station on the Line 3 (Dwarka Sec 9-Noida City Centre/Anand Vihar) causing anxious moments to hundreds of passengers on board.

DMRC officials said three-four attempts by them to open the doors proved futile but it got opened after five minutes.

They said the passengers were then de-boarded from the train, which was sent to Kirti Nagar siding for inspection.

This is the second such incident in three days when the doors of a train got stuck. Doors of a Bombardier train got stuck at the Central Secretariat station on Friday.

The incident led to huge delay in services with trains being stranded at various stations and passengers getting stuck inside trains for over 45 minutes.

Huge rush and queues were seen at Rajiv Chowk and other inter-section stations with passengers seeking refund of their tickets.
