Violence forces 15 trains to halt

Train services to and from Assam remain severely disrupted on Tuesday following the ethnic clash in Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri districts where death toll has gone up to 26.


Over 30,000 passengers have been remaining stranded at different places following violence where over 300 houses were reduced to ashes in over 30 villages.


According to NF Railway, 11 down trains from Guwahati, Dibrugarh and Kamakhya railway stations have been cancelled. Altogether 21 trains, including the Rajdhani Express, have been halted at different places along the route leaving more than 20,000 passengers stranded.


Several passengers have been injured when miscreants pelted stones at the Guwahati-bound Rajdhani Express on Tuesday morning at Gossaigaon.


The Rajdhani Express bound for Delhi was halted on Monday at Pratapkhat and Gossaigaon by the protestors who blocked the train. The NF Railway cancelled Rajdhani Express, Kamrup Express and Brahmaputra Mail from Dibrugarh station.
