MUMBAI: There were angry protests here on Friday morning as thousands of office-goers were inconvenienced due to disruption in the Central Railway suburban services during peak morning hour rush.The protest which started on the tracks soon got violent with protesters pelting stones and damaging property.The problem started with a technical fault in the pantograph of a local train near Thakurli station and this led to bunching of trains and delays of more than half an hour.As crowds swelled on the platforms, the passengers went berserk and a section of commuters resorted to rail roko at Diva station.This brought the services to a standstill and only after the police removed the protestors from the tracks, the trains were allowed to ply.Sources said that irate passengers then resorted to stone pelting at Diwa station, damaging property. There were reports of a motorman sustaining minor injuries in the stone pelting. The police have now provided protection to all motormen who are plying trains at a slow pace."It is frustrating as I am already an hour late to work. And with the trains running packed, we are being majorly inconvenienced," said an IT professional, who was travelling from Thane to CST.A CR source said that there was problem in the pantograph of a local between Thakurli and Dombivli, and this was being probed.Trains are still running 20 minutes to half an hour behind schedule, sources added.
