Five months since tensions erupted over Kashmir, India asks Pakistan to return its Samjhauta Express rake
New Delhi: It has been more than five months since the Samjhauta Express train service between India and Pakistan was suspended, in the wake of the Union government here abrogating Article 370 of the Constitution that granted special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.
Now, the Indian government has asked Islamabad to return the Samjhauta Express rake that is still lying at Wagah on the other side of the border. The train service was suspended abruptly on August 8 last year amid tense relations between the two neighbours.
According to officials of the Indian Railways, the Ministry of External Affairs has already established contact with Islamabad to get back the rake.
