Daltonganj: Unruly scenes were witnessed on platform number 1 of the Daltonganj railway station under the east central railway of the Dhanbad division on Sunday night. Around a dozen passengers who were to board the 12453Up Ranchi Delhi Rajdhani express train missed the train due to last-minute changes in timing. The usual arrival time of the train was 21.45 at the Daltonganj railway station. Passengers who missed this train were enraged that the railways did not inform them beforehand.
Daltonganj railway officials were elbowed, jostled, abused and threatened said sources. The angry passengers wanted Rajdhani express to come back again to pick them up. These passengers and their families who had come to see them off created such a huge brouhaha at the railway station that all railway traffic was suspended for one hour between 10 and 11 the previous night.
Daltonganj railway station superintendent A K Tiwary said passengers were sent an SMS about the change in timing. He added local newspapers too had flashed the change.
Social media too had circulated it widely, asserted Tiwary.
