The manager said that the passengers trapped in three trolleys in the ropeway had been safely evacuated.
“It was found during the examination that the rope of one wheel of the ropeway had also come off so the travellers had to wait midway on the ropeway until it was fixed. To fix it, the power was cut off for some time while the issue was fixed. The ropeway services have resumed”, Premangshu Debnath added.
Manisha, among those travellers who got stranded on the ropeway, told ANI that there was a sudden thunderstorm in the evening and the ropeway stopped on the way.
“All the travellers got scared. There were about 3 trolleys in the ropeway carrying the travellers. We were stuck midway in these trolleys for about 13 minutes. Later, as soon as the system became normal we safely reached the destination place”, Manisha added.
