Train service suspended again in Kashmir for security reasons

Train service has again been suspended on Friday for security reasons in the Kashmir valley, where separatists have called for a general strike on the 5th death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Guru was hanged and later buried in Delhi’s Tihar jail on this day in 2013 for his role in the Parliament attack.

‘We have again suspended train service in the Kashmir valley after receiving advisory from the police last night,’ a railway official told UNI.

He said there will be no train between Badgam-Srinagar to Anantnag, Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region. Similarly, no train will chug on Srinagar-Badgam to Baramulla in north Kashmir, he added.

This is eleventh time the train service has been suspended in the Kashmir valley partially or fully during this year so far. Last year, the train service was suspended for more than 50 times, fully or partially, for security reasons.

The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, has called for a strike today in the valley.
He said railway authorities are acting on the advice of police and administration.
