Panic as train zips past protesters at Sangrur railway station

Sangrur, October 31

Panic gripped the protesting farmers at the Sangrur railway station last night after the railway authorities operated a train allegedly without any prior information.

Even though the authorities claimed the information was disseminated to all railway stations concerned before running the departmental train, farmers denied hearing any announcement on the public address system or any officer informing them about the same. Presently all train services have been suspended in the state due to the farmers' protest against the farm Acts. "There could have been a mishap had someone been on the track," said Bhupinder Longowal, member, Kirti Kisan Union.

Longowal alleged authorities did not share any information in advance with farmers about the train.

Pankaj Gupta, Assistant Divisional Railway Manger, Ambala, said: "Though presently all train services to and from the state have been suspended, last night we ran a departmental train to conduct maintenance of tracks. It ran from Jakhal to Rajpura and all railway stations concerned were alerted." — TNS
