Train service resumes on Srinagar-Baramulla track

Srinagar, Nov 12 (UNI) Train service was resumed on Srinagar-Badgam-Baramulla in north Kashmir track on Tuesday after remaining suspended since August 3, two days before the Centre scrapped Article 370 and 35 A, besides divided the state into two Union Territories.
However, train runs will remain suspended on Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir and Banihal in Jammu region, a senior railway official said on Tuesday.
For security reasons all train runs were suspended in the Kashmir valley, where spontaneous strike completes 100 days on Tuesday 5.
The Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Baseer Ahmad Khan recently directed railway authorities to resume train service in the Kashmir valley from November 11 after conducting train run a day earlier.
However, local railway authorities, after senior officers from outside joined them, reviewed the situation of the track and security conducted a trail run on Sringar-Badgam in central to Baramulla in north Monday.
''Initially we are starting the train service between Srinagar and Baramulla today'', he said, adding that as per security advisory trains will chug on the route between 1000 hrs to 1500 hrs only.
The train runs could be increased in future as per advice from the local administration and police, he said.
He said train service will be resumed on Srinagar to Banihal track only after getting security clearance from the authorities.
Railway has suffered a loss of over Rs 3 crore due to suspension of the train service in the valley.
Train service has become very popular since it is very cheap, fast and safe against other mode of transport in the valley, where public transport, including the buses of State Road Transport Corporation (SRTC) is off the roads since August 5.
