Kashmir: Train service resumes after three days



Train services in Kashmir have been resumed on Saturday after three days of continue suspension for security reasons, a senior railway official said.

On Wednesday, train service was suspended as ‘preventive measure’ in  Kashmir when there was a JRL call against the killing of four civilians during clashes in an encounter with government forces in Kulgam on April 11.

This was the 8th time train service was suspended in the valley for security reasons this month.

A senior railway official told Kashmir Life that train service was resumed this morning in the valley.

A fresh advisory was received from police to resume the train service after remaining suspended for three days in south Kashmir for security reasons. Therefore, he said, trains will run as per schedule on Budgam-Srinagar-Islamabad-Qazigund in south Kashmir and Banihal in Jammu region today.

Similarly, trains will also chug on Srinagar-Budgam and Baramulla in north Kashmir, he added. However, the train was running in north Kashmir on April 11 smoothly, when it was suspended in south Kashmir following the encounter in Kulgam.

Last year train service remained suspended for 50 times partially or fully in the valley.
