A Railway official told Srinagar based news agency Kashmir Dot Com that the train service will remain suspended until the snow on the railway line is removed. The railway will resume its operations as soon as the snow is cleared, he said adding that “after the snow is cleared, WDS 4 will go first, apologize for the inconvenience.”
