Bhubaneswar/Bolangir: Many trains were either cancelled, partially cancelled or diverted by the East Coast Railway (ECoR) in view of the 24-hour bandh observed by the Bolangir lawyers’ association on Monday demanding establishment of the permanent High Court bench in the district.

As the agitating lawyers resorted to ‘rail roko’ agitation at Bolangir railway station, as many as four trains running on Bolangir and Titlagarh route were cancelled.

Similarly, two trains were short terminated and four diverted. Here’s a list of the trains-
