After a series of disruptions last month, Metro services in Kolkata were hit again on Tuesday morning for half an hour after a train developed a technical snag at a station.

"The Dum Dum Metro station-bound train reached Mahanayak Uttam Kumar station and developed a technical snag. All the passengers were evicted," said, Metro Railway chief spokesperson, Pratyush Ghosh.

"The driver got a burning smell from the newly-inducted air-conditioned Metro rake. So, it was decided to evict the passengers," he added.

Ghosh said the rake was later taken to a car-shed for checking.
