Delhi Metro services were hit by a technical snag on Wednesday afternoon and movement of trains between Dilshad Garden and Shahdara was affected. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation tweeted that due to this, "There will be single line train movement between the two metro stations. Due to a technical issue, train services will be run in the following loops temporarily -- between Rithala and Shahdara and between Shaheed Sthal and Dilshad Garden. There will be single line train movement between Shahdara and Dilshad Garden," Delhi Metro Rail Corporation posted on Twitter.
There is no official word on what led to the technical snag. However, a Delhi metro official told PTI that train services were affected due to OHE (overhead electricity) issue on the Dilshad Garden-Shahdara section. "The Dilshad Garden-Shahdara section trains are being operated on a single line. Rectification work is underway," he said.

Last week, the yellow line of the Delhi Metro was hit by a snag leading to disruption of regular train services. The movement of the trains between the Qutub Minar and Sultanpur station was temporarily withdrawn due to the snag. "Due to an issue at Chattarpur, train services will be run in following loops temporarily - between Huda City Centre and Sultanpur, between Samaypur Badli and Qutub Minar. There will be no train movement between Sultanpur & Qutub Minar and we'll update when the issue is rectified", a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official had said.
Huge crowds were seen outside the stations as people waited for other forms of transport. Meanwhile, to avoid any inconvenience to the passengers, DMRC has said that it will operate feeder buses between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar stations. The Delhi Metro's Yellow Line connects Delhi to Gurugram and runs from Samaypur Badli to Huda City Centre.
Before that, the Blue line had faced an issue, causing inconvenience to passengers traveling between Noida Electronic City and Akshardham. The Blue Line connects Dwarka to Noida and Vaishali.
