Kolkata: Running of passenger trains during
night on the Kharagpur-Rourkela and Kharagpur-Adra sections in
West Midnapore district would remain suspended till June 14

Express disaster.

be operated between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am, South Eastern

While several mail and express trains to and from West and
Central India have been rescheduled, three trains would remain
cancelled till June 14, the sources said.

The 315/316 Howrah-Adra Chakradharpur Passenger, 315A/316A
Howrah-Adra-Bokaro Passenger and 353/354 Kharagpur-Tata
Passenger would remain cancelled, SER sources said.
