NEW DELHI: At least four commuters were injured after an escalator at the crowded Rajiv Chowk Metro station suddenly started moving in the opposite direction at a faster pace than usual on Sunday afternoon. The snag led to a stampede-like situation as more than 25 people tumbled down and fell on each other. The CISF's quick reaction team swiftly rescued the victims. The escalator was moving up, when it stalled and started going down at high speed. The snag was reported around 12.15pm at an escalator near exit gate six of the Metro station. The sudden change in direction sent commuters tumbling down the staircase. Witnesses said senior citizens, children and women were among those using the escalator at the time. The escalator kept moving in the opposite direction for about a minute before Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) staff shut it down. But by then, four persons including a woman...
and an elderly person had sustained injuries as other commuters fell on them.
The injured were identified as Meenakshi, 24, who had injuries in the neck, G Rai, 60, Jatin Sharma, 17, and Akash, who had a cut on his leg and had to get stitches. Senior CISF officers said police were called and the injured taken to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital, where all of them were discharged after treatment. The escalator had been cordoned off and was being repaired till late Sunday evening. "Our quick reaction team was deployed near the spot and it rushed to rescue the victims. Two of the four victims required treatment at hospital while the other two sustained minor injuries. The incident could have been fatal if prompt action was not taken," said a senior CISF officer.
It was only after the escalator had come to a complete halt that the passengers could be rescued and those buried under taken out. The accident led to panic among other commuters, many of whom started to run after hearing screams of the victims. "There were around 25 passengers on the escalator at that was designed, manufactured and was being maintained by M/s Kone. Necessary action to jointly check and investigate the failure is being taken," the spokesperson said. Based on the statement of the victims, an FIR under IPC sections 287 (negligent conduct with respect to machinery) and 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) was registered at the Central Secretariat Metro station.
