SRINAGAR: Train service was suspended for security reasons on Sunday in the Kashmir valley, where some miscreants damaged coaches at several places in Anantnag and Baramulla.
''We have received a fresh advisory from police on Saturday evening to suspend train service in the valley on Sunday as a precautionary measure,'' a senior railway official told UNI.
He said no train will chug on Srinagar-Badgam and Baramulla in north Kashmir.
Similarly, no train will run on Badgam-Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region, he said.
He said the service was suspended for the safety and security of passengers and rail officials.
This was the fourth time the train service was suspended in the valley fully or partially for security reasons.
Last month, train service was suspended for 14 times in the valley.
The train service has become very popular in the valley as it is being considered very cheap, fast and safe against other modes of transport.
