The Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) on Wednesday suspended three workers, two traffic controllers and one depot controller, for sabotage of Metro train services on April 29.
In a statement, the CMRL said it was found that three non-executive staff members — R. Manokaran and K. Prem Kumar, traffic controllers and Cynthia Roshan Samson, depot controller — were controlling the entire train movement of both Corridor 1 and 2 on April 29.
They had deserted the work place and halted the trains by giving false critical command in the signalling system to disturb/hamper the Metro train services intentionally. The CMRL had placed them under suspension for sabotage of the operational services. An enquiry will follow, the officials said.
