On Thursday, the General Manager of the Northern Railway told ANI that due to the flood-like situation, the railways had to stop train services as a precautionary measure.
“It rained heavily on July 8-9…The rain that happens in the mountains comes down to the plains, and as a result, many of our tracks got submerged. So as a precautionary measure, we had to stop the train service,” said General Manager of Northern Railways, Shobhan Chaudhuri. (ANI)
