As many as 16 Youth Congress workers were arrested on Monday, 20 June, after they stopped the Nanded Express at Delhi's Shivaji Bridge railway station in protest against the Centre's new Agnipath scheme and the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) interrogation of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
Harendra K Singh, DCP, Railways, said that the ACP Railways and SHO of New Delhi Railway Station reached the spot, and removed the demonstrators from the railway tracks in coordination with Railway Protection Force (RPF).
The train resumed thereafter.
A case has been registered by the RPF under Section 174A (Obstructing Running of Train) and Section 147 (Trespass) Railways Act at New Delhi Railway Station.
Meanwhile, Congress leaders met President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Monday to discuss the alleged mistreatment of MPs by the police during the demonstrations.
Scores of senior Congress leaders and workers staged a protest at Jantar Mantar on Monday against the Agnipath defence recruitment scheme and the ED's questioning of Rahul Gandhi in a money laundering case.
