Train service resumed between India, Pak

NEW DELHI: India has decided to restore a train service to Pakistan two days after suspending it over security concerns in the wake of violence over Benazir Bhutto’s killing.Quoting a spokesman for the railway ministry Anil Saxena, an Indian news agency said that situation in Pakistan has improved and the Indian government has allowed the services to be resumed.

The Samjhauta (friendship) Express that runs between New Delhi and Lahore will leave the Indian capital city on Sunday for the border town of Attari from where it would cross the border to Lahore. The government was also likely to resume the second train, the Thar Express, named after India’s western desert, to leave the city of Jodhpur for Khokrapar next week.More than 400 passengers, mostly Pakistani nationals were stranded in Jodhpur at the weekend because of the cancellation of the train that runs every Friday.-SANA
