Angry over delay in clearing lines for local trains, hundreds of irate passengers on Friday pelted stones at Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express at the railway station in Faridabad and disrupted rail traffic.
No one was injured in the incident. However, rail traffic through the station was disrupted for nearly three hours on Friday morning, delaying trains to and from Delhi.
The trouble started at around 8 am as passengers at the railway station started protesting against railway officials allegedly giving clearance to the Express trains by delaying the departure of local trains.
As the atmosphere got charged up, some passengers pelted stones at the Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani, which was approaching the station and another local train. Though some windowpanes of the trains were broken, no injuries were reported.
At least 12 trains, including six Express services, were delayed. A large posse of police has been deployed at the station.
