Metro commuters were stranded for some time, following a power trip in a Dum Dum-bound rake at Netaji Metro Station.

The incident took place when an air-conditioned rake after kicking off its journey from Kavi Subhash had a power trip in the third line current collector (TRCC) after going some distance.

When the power trip in the TRCC occurred repeatedly, the motorman informed the metro authorities.

The metro authorities then decided to stop the rake at the next station to prevent any untoward incident in the middle of the tunnel between two stations.

Passengers were evacuated at Netaji Station while the rake was kept at platform number three. To escort the extra rush off passengers, an empty rake was brought from Kavi Subhash and commuters were carried till their respective destinations.
