Rail services in the Kashmir valley remained suspended for the ninth day on Sunday and will resume from tomorrow.

The service was suspended due to imposition of curfew in the Valley as a precautionary measure in the wake of execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru in Delhi's Tihar jail on February 9.

A meeting was held yesterday and it was decided to resume the rail services from tomorrow if there is no untoward incident, official sources said.
The Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, connecting the Kashmir valley with the rest of the country, was open and air traffic was also normal.

The breakaway Hurriyat Conference (HC) had extended the strike call till today to protest Guru's execution.
