Mathura: Pressing demand for a separate bench of the Allahabad High Court in western UP, the city lawyers on Thursday disrupted the rail traffic between Mathura Junction and Cantonment for a brief period, police said.
Lawyers blocked the Achanera-Kasganj passenger train coming from Mathura at noon near Murga crossing for over half an hour, even as rail traffic between Mathura Junction and Cantonment was disrupted, Deputy SP Ajay Pal Sharma said.
Secretary of Bar Association Mathura Pradeep Sharma said the lawyers are agitating to press their demand of establishment of bench of Allahabad High Court in Western UP.
Considering the passenger's problem, the blockade was lifted after 30 minutes, he said.
Police said there was no untoward incident during the blockade.
