Dimapur, October 28, (NE): In a notification for public consumption, the Indian Railway authority has issued a notification owing to sudden down pour of rain and flooding the railway tracks, that it has diverted/cancelled/ short terminated trains including the popular trains like Jan Shataabdi among others.

Due to heavy rain and Resultant rise in water level in areas between Bokajan and Chongajan stations in Lumding – Furketing, single line section under Lumding division of NFR, train running have been affected since yesterday. As a result many trains have been diverted, short terminated or cancelled.

The raining and the flooding is unprecedented in such times like this.
