ISLAMABAD: Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed on Thursday announced to suspend the Samjhota express leading from Pakistan to India in a bid to protest against the New-Delhi decision to scrap Article 370— annexation of Indian occupied Kashmir.
Addressing the press conference, the minister informed that the bogies of Samjhota Express will now be used for passengers traveling on the occasion of Eid.
The Samjhota Express train service was suspended earlier this year, due to escalating military tensions between the two neighbouring countries. However, the service was later resumed.
Samjhota Express ran twice a week from Lahore to Attari via the Wagah railway station.
