Woman injured at metro station

In the release, L&T Hyderabad Metro Rail mentioned, ‘The passenger was found running up the moving escalator in a hurry. She injured herself at the escalator but didn’t realise her injury and proceeded towards the platform duly buying a ticket and passing through security checks. Some fellow passengers brought to her notice the blood marks on the toe and they also approached Continental Coffee Shop and later the Station Controller office’.
