In the ensuing chaos, a man fell between the gap where metro coaches connect at the Central Secretariat Metro Station at around 6.30 pm on Friday. Visually impaired Ek Ram, in his late 40s hails from Timarpur. He miscalculated his steps and thought that he was stepping on to the entry gate. As he took the step, he fell straight between the coach and the platform. The passengers alerted the metro security staff immediately and the metro was put into an emergency halt. Thanks to the quick timing of the passengers and the metro staff, Ek Ram is now safe. He did not sustain any heavy injury. With a delay of 5 minutes, services resumed on the Yellow line.
