''The trains have been halted at Jammu Tawi station and checking of rail track is going on. The resheduled timing will be posted on Indian railways website for the facility of passengers,'' a railway spokesman from New Delhi told UNI.

The trains scheduled to leave jammu tawi station were not moved after the news of protesters damaging track at Ghagwal, a police source told UNI.

Several passengers approached this office to know about the trains' schedule and expressed anguish over the unavailability of information to them from Railway authorities as ''no one picks up telephone numbers at Jammu railway station''.
