Rail service resumed on Wednesday morning after remaining suspended for a day due to security reasons in north Kashmir, where two local militants of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) were killed in an gunfight with forces on Monday evening.

However, train run from Budgam-Srinagar to Anantnag and Qazigund to Banihal was not affected and all trains operated normally on Tuesday.

He said train service resumed on Srinagar-Budgam to Baramulla in north Kashmir, a senior railway official said.

He said an advisory was received from police on Monday night to suspend rail service in north Kashmir.
