The restrictions on movement of passenger trains during night in Maoist-affected areas of West Bengal, Orissa and Jharkhand will continue till Jan 6, the South Eastern Railway said in Kolkata on Thursday.

"In view of security reasons, running of passenger trains on Kharagpur-Adra, Chakradharpur-Rourkela and Kharagpur-Tata section will continue to remain suspended up to Jan 6 from 10pm to 5am," a railways release said.

Accordingly, some train services have been diverted, re-scheduled and regulated, it said.

The railways have been restricting the movement of trains following the May 28 Gyaneshwari Express sabotage in West Bengal's West Midnapore district in which 148 people were killed.
