More than 100 passengers stuck inside Lucknow Metro on the first day of its service due to a technical fault on Wednesday. Passengers were rescued after an hour from the metro. Their excitement for the trip turned into the nightmare on the very first day of Lucknow Metro Service. There were no lights and AC when the train stopped near Mavaiya.
Passengers were stuck inside the metro until a team of Lucknow Metro rail Corporation (LMRC) came for the rescue. They were taken out through the emergency exit.
The train that was stretched for 8.5 km long city journey was inaugurated yesterday by Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath an Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
“There was some fault in this traction and we are working on it. All trains are plying on the other parallel track,” an LMRC official said.
