Metrorail did not run until quarter past 9 for two reasons

On Sunday morning, the metro rail was closed for almost two and a half hours. Due to this, office going people suffer. The first train was supposed to run at 7:10 am but today it started after 8:45 am.

According to sources associated with the construction and operation of the metro rail in Dhaka, the metro movement faced two setbacks in the morning. Because of this, it could not be started in the morning. First, the Metrorail was shut down due to lightning. Later, the movement was stopped when polythene fell on the electric wires.

A responsible official told Prothom Alo, on condition of anonymity, that electricity cables (overhead catenary system) are open on metro rail lines. An automatic warning signal comes in case of lightning in the morning. Power lines were then shut off as a precaution.
