New Delhi/Aug,9 : A day after it announced the suspension of the Samjhauta Express between Lahore and Delhi, on Friday, Pakistan announced the halting of the Thar Express between Jodhpur and Karachi.
“From midnight tonight, we will stop the Thar Express. We don’t have the resources to take responsibility for the security of Indian passengers in Mirpurkhas,” Pakistan Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said at a press conference in Islamabad.
“So in order to avoid any untoward incident, we will send off the 200 passengers to Zero Line with a bottle of water at 11:55 p.m. tonight. This is finished now. No more,” he said.
