Call it callousness of the staff or a genuine technical fault, a Delhi Metro train - packed with passengers - continued to run with one of its gates open for quite a distance. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said it was a technical glitch.
The train was plying between Samaypur Badli and HUDA City Centre. The snag appeared at Chawri Bazar Station on Monday night around 10pm.
One of the doors of the train remained open till Civil Lines Station, where the train was pulled out of service for checking, an IANS report said.
It was an unusual incident as the metro operating system is designed in a way that trains can't leave a station until all doors are locked, a Hindustan Times report pointed out.
A DMRC official told IANS that the incident came to the notice of the metro staff and security personnel were deployed at the gates to prevent any accident.
A video shot from inside the metro train of the open gate went viral on social media on Monday night.
"We were completely aware of the incident and went about the business. We came to know about the incident immediately and had deployed the staff. One can see the staff at the gate even in the video as well," the official told IANS. He said the fault was only with that one particular door which is shown open in the video.

In July 2014, a train ran with all its doors open between Ghitorni and Arjangarh stations on the same Yellow Line. It was termed as "safety lapse" and the operator suspended.
