Railway traffic disrupted at Nimiaghat demanding stoppage
Demanding stoppage of intercity and superfast trains at Nimiaghat station under Dhanbad-Gaya section in this district, locals, led by Jharkhand Mukti Morcha MLA Jagarnath Mahto, blocked both UP and DN tracks for around four hours early today.
Official sources said hundreds of people, led by the JMM MLA, blocked the railway tracks from 0400 hrs to 0800 hrs resulting in delay of trains, including the Howrah bound Rajdhani express.
The blockade was lifted following intervention of railway officials after 0800 hrs.
'The railway administration has assured to look into our demands and do the needful in one month,' Mr Mahto said. He also added that they will relaunch their agitation if their demands were not fulfilled.
