|Mumbai railway protest: Train service resumes, rail roko students stay put|
Mumbai railway traffic resumed between Dadar and Matunga after hundreds of thousands of Mumbai local commuters faced difficulties today, with scores of agitating students blocking rail traffic, including suburban services between the two stations, demanding jobs in the Railways. The agitating students, according to a Central Railway official, blocked the rail track at 7 in the morning today, forcing the Railways to stop the suburban and express trains in the affected section between Matunga and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT). The agitating Railways job aspirants were still present at the spot where they have been protesting, between Matunga and CSMT.
Railways officials have told a national daily that they are running special trains for the Kurla station in the down direction. They added that they are diverting railway traffic from Dadar station in the up direction.
