Nuapada (Orissa), Sep 27 (IANS) Train services in western Orissa were hit Wednesday as hundreds of people sat on the railway lines in Nuapada district, demanding stoppage of all express trains at the station here.

'At least 300 agitators of Nuapada Vikash Mancha led by Surendra Kumar Panda rushed to the railway station here in the morning and sat on the tracks,' said a district police official.

They stopped the Inter City Express going from state capital Bhubaneswar to Raipur in Chhattisgarh. As a result of the agitation, several trains in the region had to be halted at different stations, he said.

While a train travelling from Keshinga to Raipur was halted at the Kantabanji railway station, a passenger train going from Visakhapatnam to Durg was detained at the Titilagarh railway station near Nuapada, he said.

Several express trains pass through the Nuapada railway station, including the Nizamuddin Express, Samata Express, Link Express and Puri-Ahmedabad Express. But none of these stop at Nuapada, which is approximately 650 km from Bhubaneswar, Suresh Kumar Agrawal, one of the agitators, told IANS.

Passengers from more than 100 villages and towns in the district are often faced with difficulties travelling to far-off locations, as only a few trains stop at the station.
