In an announcement, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said, “Due to technical snag at TRINITY Station at 9.58 AM today train service got disrupted & later at Kempegowda stn Majestic the fault train was moved to pocket track. Train services are restored and may take a minimum of an hour to restore to normal. Inconvenience caused is regretted.”

This is the third disruption of metro services this month. On 3 June, a tree branch fell on the metro tracks due to heavy rains just after Trinity Station towards MG road and train services were partially disrupted. The tree branches were cleared later, and metro services resumed.

A few days ago, a man jumped on the tracks of the Purple Line metro station and attempted suicide. He was rescued by the metro staff and rushed to the nearby hospital. The incident disrupted metro services at KSR Bengaluru, Magadi Road, Hosahalli, Vijayanagar, Attiguppe, and Deepanjali Nagar, but they were resumed after 30 minutes.
