Delhi-Panipat women-special train to be started again, commuters relieved

In a development that is set to make women commuters relieved, the women-only special train between Delhi and Panipat would be restarted in a few days' time.

The special train was discontinued due to some difficulties two months ago.

Several women commuters had also held protest at Sonepat station yesterday morning.

However, now the women traveling on this route will surely be elated.
