A senior railway official told Kashmir Life that trains were running normally in north Kashmir between Srinagar-Budgam and Baramulla but was suspended on Monday in view of the election in Pulwama and Baramulla district.

A fresh advisory was received on Monday night to resume the service on both routes today, he said.

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.
