Lahore: Faking the peace gesture yet again, Pakistan has restored the Samjhauta Express train services between Lahore and Delhi on Monday. The services were shut down due to the ongoing tense bilateral ties between the neighbouring countries.

The train departs on Monday and Thursday from Lahore.

The Samjhauta Express carrying some 150 passengers left Lahore railway station for India, Radio Pakistan reported.

The train, named after the Hindi word "agreement", comprises six sleeper coaches and an AC 3-tier coach. The train service was started on July 22, 1976 under the Shimla Agreement that settled the 1971 war between the two nations.
