Picketeers blocked rail traffic at several places in the Sealdah-Ranaghat, Sealdah-Bongaon and Sealdah-Barasat section for several hours. However, it was alleged that some Trinamool Congress supporters arrived at Garia railway station and attacked the protesters. It was said that they snatched sticks from the policemen and attacked them but the latter remained mere spectators.
Rail traffic was disrupted before the police cleared the lines following which train movement resumed, superintendent of rail police, Sealdah, Utpal Laskar said.
The investors were protesting as they failed to get money following the scam.
