Transportation halted at Renjada railway siding

Sundergarh: Transportation has come to a standstill at Renjada railway siding here following a clash between two labourer groups since Saturday.

Sources said a pitched battle was ensued between two workers groups- BMS and CPIM- in which many were injured and are undergoing treatment. Tension prevailed there after the clash. The district administration has intervened to restore normalcy. On the other hand, the goods trains are stationed as the loading of mineral ores has been halted.

Notably, BMS and CPIM had a face-off on Saturday night over the alleged stacking of iron ores at the siding. An administrative probe was also conducted in this regard.
