Thousands of commuters in Delhi and Gurgaon were affected this morning and traffic jams were reported from several parts in the two cities after services were hit on Delhi Metro's Yellow Line due to technical glitches.

Services were restored in the afternoon about four hours after the breakdown of overhead wire (OHE) at the Sultanpur station hit the operations at around 9:30 am, according to news agency PTI.

"Normal services have now resumed. Inconvenience is regretted. Please allow for some extra time in your commute till the bunching of trains eases,"  the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said on Twitter. 
 

Earlier, the DMRC said passengers of two trains between Qutub Minar and Chhattarpur were evacuated after the services were hit this morning. The Delhi Metro also ran feeder bus services between Sultanpur and Qutub Minar stations to help the stranded passengers.

Yellow Line, one of the busiest routes of the Delhi Metro, connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi to Huda City Centre in Gurgaon. The 49 km-route has a total of 37 stations. 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he has asked state transport minister Kailash Gahlot to seek a detailed report from Delhi Metro.

On Twitter, people shared videos and pictures of commuters walking on metro tracks after power failure at metro stations.

Some social media users also complained about traffic jams due to the disruption of metro services.

A user also tweeted about "evacuation through metro gates"  at one of the stations on the Gurgaon route.
