Train services in Kashmir were made operational on Tuesday, almost 100 days after being suspended due to security reasons in view of the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370, officials said. Police had submitted a report on the security situation following which the operations were given a go ahead on the Baramulla–Srinagar rail stretch.
Northern Railways spokesman Deepak Kumar told HT that a train chugged between Baramulla and Srinagar Tuesday morning. “The train made only two trips on the stretch as the authorities have directed Railways to ply trains between 10am and 3pm only due to security reasons,” he said.
“Today’s operations were smooth and the number of trips will be increased in the coming days after state government’s clearance ,’’ the spokesperson said as he hailed the resumption of the services. Read More
