The Visakha-Tirupati train has been halted for four hours on Tuesday at Renigunta railway station. This weekly train, which takes number of people to the hill town of Tirumala, has been forced to stop due to the failure of signalling system. The irate passengers lost their patience and started arguing with train driver and indulging in heated exchanges. Aged people and children are put to heavy suffering because of the incident. Railway employees union president, speaking on the occasion over phone, said that non availability of the platforms due to extension and repairing work may be the reason behind halt.
