New Delhi: The Samjhauta Express is set to resume from India tomorrow after the two neighbours agreed to operationalise services at their ends, officials said. Pakistani authorities had suspended the train services from their end on February 26, the day India carried out aerial strikes at a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror camp in Balakot.

The Samjhauta Express, or the peace train, is a bi-weekly train that runs on Wednesday and Sunday between Delhi and Attari in India and Lahore in Pakistan. It comprises six sleeper coaches and an AC 3-tier coach.

The train departs from the Old Delhi Railway Station on Wednesdays and Sundays. On its return journey from Lahore, the train arrives in India on Mondays and Thursdays.
