Srinagar: Train service resumed in the Kashmir valley his morning after remaining suspended for a day due to security reasons. Separatist organisations had yesterday called for a bandh to protest the death of three youths in security force firing in central Kashmir district of Badgam, where a militant was killed and a soldier injured in an encounter on March 28. All the trains service have been resumed today, a railway official told UNI. He said train services between Srinagar-Badgam and Baramulla in north Kashmir have been resumed this morning. Similarly, the train services between Badgam-Srinagar-Anantnag-Qazigund in south Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region were running as per schedule. He said the decision to suspend train service was taken after receiving advisory from the state police and administration as there was apprehension of trouble in the valley. In the past, railways suffered loss of property worth crores of rupees in violence in the valley, particularly during strike calls. However, during about six month-long summer unrest last year, the rail service remained suspended in the valley
