Duo briefly halt Shri Shakti Express train in Jammu

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, two individuals, including a woman, briefly stopped the Shri Shakti Express train on Monday by staging a protest at a railway station.

The protest was sparked by frustration over cancellation of trains and a lack of timely information about the train schedule.

A young man and his female relative sat on the tracks as the Shri Shakti Express was arriving at the Jammu railway station from New Delhi on Monday, officials said.

The train was stopped briefly at the entry to the station on track number one. The police detained the duo shortly after and the train resumed its journey following a brief halt, they said.
