Train service resumes in south Kashmir after 4 days


Srinagar, Mar 9:-Train service resumed on Friday after remaining suspended for four days in the Kashmir valley for security reasons, a senior railway official said. We have resumed train service in Kashmir after remaining suspended for four days.

However, some trains operated in the morning on Thursday in south Kashmir. But we had to suspend all trains later as there was some stone pelting incident between Anantnag and Bijbehara, he said. No train could run in north Kashmir as a precautionary measure yesterday after there was some law and order problem, he added.

Trains will run between Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region as per schedule today, he said. Similarly, the train will also chug on Srinagar-Badgam in central Kashmir to Baramulla in the north, he said.

He said a fresh advisory was received last night from police to resume the normal train service in the Kashmir valley.
We are acting on the advice of police, he said adding the decision has been taken in the interest of passengers and railway property.

Train service in the valley was suspended from Monday, when there was a separatist strike call against the killing of six people, including two Lashkher-e-Toiba (LeT) militants in an encounter with security forces in Shopian on Sunday night. A Chief commander of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) involved in about four fidayeen attacks, including Sunjwan Army camp in Jammu, was also killed in an encounter on Monday afternoon in Pulwama
