“It’s true our rail track was damaged,” he said, adding that he couldn’t confirm if its a terrorist attack.

He said the track was destroyed by suspected vandals as vandalism of the NRC facilities has been on the increase in recent times.

“So we have issues with the track and we are fixing it. We are working to resume train services and by today’s (Thursday) evening, we should run if possible.
