No casualty or injury has been reported until now. Fifteen fire tenders have been rushed to the spot to douse the massive blaze. However, some media reports state that around 17 firefighters have been rushed to the spot.
Fire-fighting operation is underway. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
"Train movement has been stopped temporarily between Jasola Vihar Shaheen Bagh and Kalindi Kunj due to smoke and fire from a fire underneath the section. We regret the inconvenience," a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) statement said.
