Metro trains at Patel Nagar station were not stopping since 7:20 pm on Sunday, September 13, after a bomb threat call was made as reported by Times Of India . The police were trying to trace the number from which the call was made at the metro station.
“The DMRC has said that services at the station will remain suspended till the search operations are over,” reports TOI.
We called up the Delhi Metro office at Barakhamba Road to check if this were true. A Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official who we spoke to has denied knowledge about any such information.
The Delhi Metro ferries over 23 lakh passengers daily, with the highest volume of commuters on the Blue Line between Noida and Dwarka. Patel Nagar falls on the Blue Line.
