Samjhauta Express arrives Delhi 4.5 hours late

Samjhauta Express arrives Delhi 4.5 hours late”

A day after shutting down Samjhauta Express-the bi-weekly train that connects Delhi in India to Lahore in Pakistan - "forever", Pakistan on Friday suspended Thar Link Express - a weekly train that runs between Jodhpur to Munabao in India and Khokhrapar to Karachi in Pakistan.

"We have made a decision to shut down Samjhauta Express", Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed told a news conference on Thursday.

University professors, business leaders and activists were among the 560 people taken to makeshift detention centres - some during midnight raids - in the cities of Srinagar, Baramulla and Gurez, the Press Trust of India and the Indian Express reported.

"... Samjhauta Express services have been permanently stopped".

"As long as I am railways minister, Samjhauta Express can't operate", Reuters quoted Rasheed as saying.

This follows the measures announced by the National Security Council on Wednesday after India revoked special status for Jammu and Kashmir.

However, formal permissions for the transfer had not been issued by the time this report was published as, according to the sources, both India and Pakistan were caught in the process of obtaining approvals from their respective authorities.

Earlier on Thursday, on Twitter, Firdous Ashiq Awan, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting said, "All kinds of Indian content have been stopped and Pemra (Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority) has been directed to step up its vigilance in this regard along with actions against the sale of Indian DTH instruments". "The parliament used to pass laws that benefit the people, but Jammu and Kashmir could not benefit from them because of Article 370", he said. Kashmiris as well as critics of India's Hindu nationalist-led government see the move as an attempt to dilute the demographics of Muslim-majority Kashmir with Hindu settlers.

The Pakistan Army has warned India against any "misadventure" and vowed to give a stronger response than February 27 if New Delhi fails to heed the word of caution.
