India-Pak Samjhauta Express to resume services

Lahore: The India-Pakistan Samjhauta Express resumed plying on Thursday, after being suspended for some days due to the violent street protests in Haryana, the media reported.

The train, with a capacity of up to 500 passengers, runs between Delhi and Lahore. Duniya News said the train left the Pakistani city on Thursday morning.

Train and bus services between India and Pakistan were suspended following widespread protests by the Jat community in Haryana. On Wednesday, the bus service resumed operations.

Officials at the Lahore office of the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporations stated that along with the India Samjhauta Express, the Dosti Bus service would also resume its operations after clearance from Indian authorities.
