A group of protestors led by Surjit Singh, President of a Sikh group, Danga Peerat Association, squatted on the rail tracks here and raised slogans against the government.

As a result, the New Delhi-bound Shatabdi Express scheduled to leave the city at 7 am was detained by the railway authorities at the station here itself.

The super fast train was later sent to the national capital via Dhuri, railway sources said.
Demanding justice to the victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots and action against the guilty, Sikh groups have been holding protests in Punjab recently.

On November 3, radical Sikh groups had called for a Punjab bandh on the issue.
