Train service resumed this morning after remaining suspended for two days due to security reasons in south Kashmir, a senior Railway official said.

Trains continued to operate as per schedule on Srinagar-Badgam in central Kashmir to Baramulla in north, he said.

The train service on Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region was resumed this morning after remaining suspended for two days for security reasons, Chief Controller Northern Railway said.

He said the decision to resume all train runs on this track was taken after receiving green signal from civil and police administration last night.

Train service was suspended on this track after a top district commander of Lashker-e-Toiba (LeT) AyoubLalihari was killed in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama on August 16, leading to massive protests in the south Kashmir forcing suspension of last train from Banihal to Srinagar.
