The train services will be available only between 8 PM and 4 AM and the rest of the services will remain cancelled in the daytime.

The protestors are destroying the public properties and disrupting public life on demand of withdrawing the newly announced scheme, Agnipath. The Army, Navy and Airforce chiefs have said that the protests are led by people who have no clarity about the working and implementation of the scheme and the youth must withdraw from such agitations.
