Normalcy returning to Punjab, railway traffic resumes

Chandigarh, Wed, 27 May 2009 ANI

Chandigarh, May 27 (ANI): Punjab is slowly returning to normal, as railway traffic has resumed in the state.


Besides local train services, two special trains have left for Delhi from Jammu.


Hundreds of goods trucks, which were also stranded due to the violence, started leaving for their destinations today.


Meanwhile, curfew has been relaxed in Ludhiana, Jallandhar and Hoshiarpur.


Army, paramilitary and Punjab police personnel, however, continue to patrol areas worst affected by the violence of the last two days.


On Tuesday, at least 40,000 train passengers were left stranded inside and outside railway stations across Punjab following disruption of railway traffic by supporters of a Sikh outfit.


The Guwahati-Jammu Himgiri Express was the first train that passed through Ludhiana on Tuesday morning.


The India-Pakistan bus service "Sada-e-Sarhad" was temporarily halted by the Punjab authorities on Monday, but has since resumed.


The large-scale violence between followers of Dera Sach Khand and conservative Sikhs in the state over the attack on a Sikh shrine in the Austrian capital Vienna forced the authorities to stop the service on security reasons. (ANI)
