Delhi Metro Railway corporation (DMRC) services on the Blue Line, which runs between Dwarka Sector-21 and Janakpuri West were temporarily suspended on the night of May 31  for over half an hour following a scuffle between metro staff and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel over the parking issue.

The services were suspended after a station manager was beaten up by CISF security personnel.
Sources revealed the incident which occured at around 12:30 pm was triggered by an argument that ensued when a tyre of a vehicle apparently belonging to the CISF was “deflated” since it was parked in the “unauthorised zone” outside the premises of Dwarka Sector 21 station.

CISF personnel then asked a DMRC staff as to why was it done. The staff told him that since it was parked illegally, the station manager had ordered to deflate the tyre,” according to reports. Following this the station manager was thrashed and beaten up.

The station manager alleged that he was assaulted by a CISF sub-inspector when he objected to the officer parking his motorcycle in a specific area.

DMRC later filed a police complaint.

“An inquiry has been ordered and action will be taken based on its findings,” CISF spokesperson said.

However, CISF spokesperson maintained that thrashing initiated only after the station manager had verbally abused the CISF personnel.

DMRC official confirms the services on the line from Janakpuri West to Noida City Centre and Vaishali were running normal.
