Srinagar: Train service was resumed in the Kashmir valley on Saturday after remaining suspended on Friday following damage caused to windowpanes of some coaches on Thursday on Srinagar-Baramulla track.
“We have resumed the train service on all routes in the Kashmir valley today,” a senior railway official told UNI.
He said train will chug as per schedule on Badgam-Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region. Similarly trains will also run on Srinagar-Badgam in central Kashmir to Baramulla in north, he said.
“We were forced to suspend train service on Friday following stone pelting on Srinagar-Badgam-Baramulla track due to which windowpanes of some coaches were damaged. Driver of one of the train had a narrow escape when a stone hit front window,” he added.
“We were forced to suspend train as we have to take into consideration the safety of passengers and rail officials besides rail property,” he said.
