Metro services in Kolkata, which have faced a series of disruptions this month, were hit again on Friday morning after a train developed a technical snag at a station.

"The Kavi Subhas-bound train, which started from Dum Dum station, reached Belgachia station and got stranded due to a technical snag," said Metro Railway chief spokesperson, Pratyush Ghosh. "The emergency brake got stuck with the wheels of the newly-inducted air-conditioned metro rake," he added.

Ghosh said smoke was seen from beneath the rake, which was later taken to a car-shed at Tollygunge for examination.
