Siliguri, 11 November: Tourists and passengers were inconvenienced after local traders operating adjacent to the NJP railway station shut down their shops and stalled transport today.
The traders alleged that a woman trader involved in "unsocial activities", who had been driven away yesterday, is still doing business with the help of police.
Hundreds of passengers who reached NJP in the morning had to walk as rickshaws, city autos and taxis were not available. Some of them said they did not get police help as no policeman was present at the station. When asked about  problems faced by passengers, police said they could not put pressure on private transport operators.       SNS
