Train service was suspended on Saturday for security reasons in the Kashmir valley, in view of joint resistance leadership shutdown call against panchayat election.
‘We have suspended all train in the Kashmir valley on Saturday,’ a senior railway official told Kashmir Life.
Therefore, he said, no train will chug on Budgam-Srinagar-Islamabad-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region. Similarly, trains will also not run on Srinagar-Badgam and Baramulla in north Kashmir, he said.
The shutdown was called by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), a separatist conglomerate headed by Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
