Kolkata: Train services were affected in Eastern Railway’s Sealdah division Monday due to blockade of tracks by agitators at five places, an official said.

The blockade at the five stations – Titagarh, Kanchrapara, Dum Dum Cantonment, Bongaon and Dum Dum junction stations began at around 4 pm, ER spokesman Nikhil Chakraborty said.

Several EMU local trains were detained at different stations in the Sealdah Main and Sealdah-Bongaon sections owing to the agitation.

Efforts are on to persuade the agitators to lift the blockade, which is due to non-railway issues, Mr Chakraborty said.
