NEW DELHI -- The Delhi Traffic Police on Saturday challaned as many 678 people for violating the odd-even rules on second day.

Meanwhile, a day after snags disrupted services on Metro Red Line, leaves of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) staff have been cancelled till 30 April.

A five-member task force has also been formed to deal with any emergency.

The snapping of overhead wire at four places between Kashmere Gate and Shastri Park stations had thrown services on the Red Line out of gear for several hours on Friday leaving thousands of passengers stranded.

The 23-km-long Red Line connects east Delhi's Dilshad Garden to Rithala, located in the north-west Delhi.
