Pakistan restores Samjhauta Express services to Delhi

Lahore, Mar 4: Pakistani authorities on Monday restored the Samjhauta Express services between Lahore and Delhi, days after the train was suspended due to tense bilateral ties.
The train departs on every Monday and Thursday from Lahore.
The Samjhauta Express carrying some 150 passengers left Lahore railway station for India, reports said.
In New Delhi, Railways officials announced on Saturday that the two countries have agreed to operationalise services at their ends. India cancelled the operations on February 28.
The train operates from Delhi on every Wednesday and Sunday.
Pakistani authorities suspended the train service on February 28 amidst tense bilateral ties in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.
The footfall of the train, which generally records an occupancy of around 70 per cent, had fallen drastically post the Pulwama attack in which 49 CRPF soldiers were killed.
