Separatists guerillas blow up railway track in Kashmir

Separatists guerillas have blown up about three metres of railway track in South Kashmir's Pulwama district, an official said in Srinagar on Friday.

"About two to three metres of railway track was blown up by guerillas late Thursday by carrying out an IED blast near Ratnipora village in Pulwama. The track is being restored and rail traffic will be resumed very shortly," the official said.

This is the first time that separatist guerrillas have attempted to disrupt rail traffic in the valley, which connects South Kashmir with North Kashmir.
