Hundreds of villagers blocked a railway track in Panisagar area of North Tripura on Tuesday, demanding construction of a level-crossing in the area.

A local said, "In absence of the level-crossing, the railway line poses risk to the lives of locals."

According to locals, seven people have been killed in train accidents since 2004.

"Since 2004, 7 people have been killed in train accidents while crossing the track. We demand that either a railway crossing or an overbridge is constructed. We will continue the blockage until our demands are fulfilled," said a local in Panisagar area of North Tripura district. (ANI)
