#delhimetro is stuck at Sultanpur metro station and the first prompt to update the passengers has come in 15 minutes. Until now we were all clueless, and of course, restless assuming everyone is late to office. Can someone head my meeting at 10? I don't think I am gonna make it!— sanjhiagarwal (@SanjhiAgarwal) May 21, 2019

Due to the snag, commuters had a hard time reaching their destination and many passengers were stranded at the Qutub Minar station.
“Due to a technical snag at Chattarpur, train services have been affected on the Yellow Line. The issue is being rectified,” a senior DMRC official said.
Trains are being run in following loops temporarily -- between Huda City Centre and Sultanpur and between Samaypur Badli and Qutub Minar, he said.
“There will be no train movement between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar,” he said.
