Some commuters had boarded a Howrah-Barddhaman special train for railway staffers and were forced to disembark, an Eastern Railway spokesperson said.

However, they regrouped and tried to reboard the train by attempting to break open the closed gates of other compartments, he said.

A joint team of GRP and RPF personnel chased away around 100 commuters from the platform, the spokesperson said.
