Train services in parts of lower Assam remained paralyzed on Tuesday following an eight-hour rail blockade called by the All Assam Koch Rajbongshi Students' Union (AAKRSU).
AAKRSU called the blockade demanding separate Kamatapur State and Schedule Tribe status of Koch Rajbongshis living in Assam.
Hundreds of AAKRSU activists, led by its President Arun Ray, squatted at Salakati Railway crossing and railway tracks since morning with poster and banners and shouted slogans in support of their demands. There was, however, no report of any untoward incident. Northeast Frontier Railway controlled the Up Intercity and Rajya Rani Express train at Fakiragram railway station while down Rajdhani Express train was controlled at New-Bongaigaon railway junction.
