Srinagar: Train services remained suspended for the second consecutive day on Saturday on Srinagar-Banihal track due to security reasons, officials said.

The official said that the train service was suspended on Badgam-Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund and Banihal in Jammu region route on Friday from 1000 hrs following an advisory received from police. A fresh advisory was received last night not to resume the service on this route today also, he said.
