Train service again suspended for security reasons in Kashmir

SRINAGAR : Train service has again been suspended for security reasons in the Kashmir valley today, when separatist had called for a general strike on 86th death anniversary of 22 martyrs of 1931, killed during Dogra rule outside the Central Jail, Srinagar.
”We have suspended all rail runs in the valley for security reasons,” a railway official said.
He said there will be no train service on Srinagar-Badgam in the central Kashmir to Baramulla in north. Similarly, all trains running on Badgam-Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu have been suspended.
He said decision to suspend the train service, which has become most popular mode of transport in the valley, has been taken after receiving directions from police authorities.
