Silchar: Train services which were disrupted for the past three days in parts of north-east, have resumed after the agitators withdraw blockades.

The railway employees and their wives started demonstration on the tracks in Assam’s Badarpur area following kidnapping of the driver of Badarpur-Bhairavi passenger train by suspected tribal militants on Thursday.

North-east Frontier Railway spokesman S Hajong today said train services on Lumding-Silchar, Lumding-Agartala, Silchar-Agartala, Silchar-Jiribam, Badarpur-Bhairavi and other sections of the region resumed since 2200 hrs last night after nearly three days.

The agitation was withdrawn following a meeting between Additional Divisional Railway Manager Satish Kotari and the agitating railwaymen at Badarpur, the sub-divisional head-quarter of NFR, said area manager (Badarpur). Police said a joint operation by the police, the Army and the CRPF from both Assam and Mizoram sides was on to rescue the driver, abducted by suspected United Democratic Liberation Army (UDLA), a Bru (Reang) militant outfit from a place near Assam-Mizoram border.
