Howrah: The train block has been withdrawn finally. The passengers were in difficulty over the rail blockade early in the morning. Due to the block, at least 18 locals and 3 mail trains were stranded. After almost 2.5 hours, the situation was brought under control.
The passengers of local trains blocked trains on Thursday morning at Howrah’s Dasnagar station. They were protesting as local trains were given in the mail line.
On Thursday morning, from the Santragachi station, the Panskura local was given in the mail line. Due to this, the passengers could not get down in their destined stations. On the other hand, several took risks and jumped from the train in the stations.
On the other hand, the passengers also alleged that there was a huge possibility of a major accident due to the presence of train in the Up and Down line. They have alleged that this mistake was done by the station master of the Santragachi station. The south-east railways have assured a thorough investigation into the incident.
At present, the train services have resumed normalcy at the south-east line.
