The first incident occurred about 6:41pm yesterday when a brake on a train was pulled at Shanghai Science and Technology Museum Station. A similar incident happened at Lujiazui Station at about 7:40pm.
Thousands of passengers were affected as trains were halted for about 10 minutes, the Metro operator said.
