Train service was suspended on Friday for security reasons in the Kashmir valley in view of joint resistance leadership shutdown call against the recent killings in Kashmir.
Five militants, two civilians and two army men were killed in separate gunfights in south Kashmir’s Pulwama and Shopian districts on Thursday.
