Train service between India-Pakistan to resume on Thursday

Islambad, Feb 23 (IANS) The operation of Samjhauta Express — a train service between Inida and Pakistan — which has been suspended due to the protests in Haryana, will be resumed from Thursday, the Pakistan Railways said.

The train and bus services between the two countries were suspended following widespread protests by the Jat community in Haryana that have cut off road and rail links to Delhi.

However, officials at the Lahore office of the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation on Monday said the Dosti Bus service would resume its operation after clearance from Indian authorities, Dawn online reported.

“Indian rail authorities have informed us that they operated a special train on the Uttar Pradesh route to transport more than 1,000 passengers to Delhi from Chandigarh,” said an official involved in the operation of the train that runs between Wagah and Attari on Mondays and Thursdays.

Some 200 passengers have got their seats reserved for Monday’s Samjhauta Express.

“Tickets issued to passengers for Monday would be valid for the next immediate journey,” said the officer, adding that the train can occupy up to 500 passengers.
