As a result, services along the Tollygunge-Kavi Subhas route were disrupted for almost 20 minutes because of the power failure. After the incident, the metro services along the line remained disrupted for around half-an-hour, said a Lalbazar officer.

Detectives found a loaded gun in her vehicle and detained her. She told officers she "wanted to die" and admitted to firing the shot.

There were no injuries but it is unclear where the woman's shot went, police said. "A great job by Detectives and Deputies to use CIT (Crisis Intervention Training) to talk the female into a peaceful resolution and get her the help she needed".
