Movement of all trains came to a grinding halt on Thursday when local residents in large number blocked the rails in Raha demanding the proposed AIIMS in central part of the state.

Raising slogans demanding an immediate shift in the AIIMS venue, the protesters squatted on the rail tracks at 8 in the morning forcing several trains to stop for three hours.

Later the blockade was called off with an warning that it would resume if the demand fails to reach the authorities.
