Train services resume in Kashmir

Srinagar, Oct 7 (UNI) Train services were resumed on Saturday morning after remaining suspended for security reason in the Kashmir valley, where separatists had called for protests after prayers against braid chopping incidents.
''We have resumed all train runs across the Kashmir valley since this morning,'' a senior Railway official told UNI.
He said all trains are operating normally on Srinagar-Badgam in central Kashmir and Baramulla in north, route after remaining suspended since Friday afternoon. Similarly, trains are also running on Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region, he said.
He said train service was suspended as per advisory received from police.
The service was resumed again on the advice of police, he said, adding that Saturday and Monday normally witness heavy rush of passengers. Employees and businessmen, who are working or doing business in other places, are travelling on these days.
When asked about the inconvenience being caused to thousands of passengers, particularly those travelling daily in the train, due to suspension of train services, the official said Railway has nothing to do with it.
''We are acting only on the advice of local administration and police,'' he said, adding that the railway authorities can understand the difficulties being faced by the passengers.
Thousands of people in the Kashmir valley are travelling daily in the trains as the service is being considered safe, fast and cheap as compared to other modes of transport.
Railway property suffered heavy damage during demonstrations in the past. Last year, the train service remained suspended for about six months due to summer unrest in the valley.
