Bengaluru: Following a power failure at the Yeshwantpur metro station, over 84 passengers were evacuated from a Namma metro train on Monday, December 21.

Due to disrupted power services on the Metro’s Greenline from 1.03 pm to 1.53 pm, the train stopped on the tracks and was forced to halt between Kuvempu Road and Rajajinagar stations

The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) staff then forcibly opened the doors of one of the coaches and evacuated the passengers in a 15-minute operation.

While some passengers took back their money and vacated the station, other passengers waited and continued their journey after power supply was restored.

Passengers were guided out of the train to the side walk by trained staff of BMRCL. The sidewalk width is one metre and passengers walked on the sidewalk in a column led by the Metro staff. They had to walk a distance of about 200 metres as the train was forced to halt 200 metres from the Rajajinagar station.
