Incidents and accidents

*A catenary wire broke near Kamuning station, where a southbound train headed from this station was stranded, forcing the passengers inside the train to walk to that station. Service was suspended from Shaw Boulevard to North Avenue, with commuters also asking whether the incident was purely mechanical or incidental, as some claim that the malfunctions were used to justify the MRTC's call for higher fares.
