Train service was also suspended on September 25, when there was a strike called by traders and transporters, supported by separatists in protest against summoning more people by National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection with terror funding.

However, the service was resumed on September 26 only to be suspended again yesterday.

“We have again resumed all train runs in the Kashmir valley today”, a senior railway official was quoted by a New Delhi based news gathering agency.

He said, “a fresh advisory was received late last night from the police to resume the train service in the valley.
