Hisar: The ongoing agitation by Jats, seeking OBC quota in government jobs, on Monday spread affecting new train routes even as the protesters rejected the diktat of Khaps to suspend the stir in view of talks with the state government.

The fortnight-long agitation, which the Jats had agreed to call off following talks between the Khap leaders and Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in Chandigarh on Saturday, hit train services on the Hisar-Ludhiana route, officials said.

Rail traffic to Punjab was affected as the route was blocked by members of the community at Gajuwala railway station.

Traffic on Hisar-Bhiwani track also remained disrupted as railway authorities suspended some trains as a precautionary measure.
