Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh), Sep. 24 (ANI): Train passengers blocked railway tracks and detained the Sealdah Rajdhani Express in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad city on Friday demanding solution to their problems of direct link to the Delhi Junction.

Apart from detaining the train, the irate passengers climbed on the locomotives as part of their protest.

The local police later intervened and dispersed the demonstrators after assuring them that appropriate measures would be taken to mitigate their problems.

"The bridge near the old Delhi Railway station has been closed due to floods as such many trains are detained here. People who carry a Monthly Season Ticket (MST) and who have to travel to Delhi every day, gathered here and stopped the Sealdah Rajdhani Express," said Raghubir Lal, Senior Superintendent of Railway Police, Ghaziabad.

"Their demand was that their problems should be solved on a priority basis and then they will let the train move," he added.

Raghubir Lal further said the movements of the trains have been resumed.

"They had blocked the tracks, which was later on cleared.

Rajdhani Express has left and now other trains are moving as well. Now the arrangements have been done and there are no problems," said Lal. (ANI)
