Several Trains Cancelled in Mumbai As Students Block Tracks


Train services were disrupted in Mumbai during rush hour on Tuesday as students demanding railway jobs laid down on the tracks.

The students, who have cleared the railway apprentice examination, have been protesting since 7 am between the Matunga and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CSMT) stations. The railways have been forced to stop running suburban and express trains.

The protesters stopped trains plying between Matunga and Dadar stations. Police personnel were rushed to the spot soon after the protests gained momentum. The aspirants reportedly resorted to stone pelting on the cops as they tried to stop them from protesting on railway tracks.

The aspirants claim that they have cleared the examination conducted by the Railways. The Central line of Mumbai local train network runs from Chhatrapati Shivani Terminus to Karjat and Khapoli. As many as 40 to 42 lakh commuters travel via the Central line everyday.
