Samjhauta Express Agreement

The Samjhauta Express (transl. Friendship Express) is a two-week train (Thursday and Monday) running between Delhi and Attari in India and Lahore in Pakistan. The word Samjhauta means Hindi and Urdu “agreement,” “agreement” and “compromise.” There is now a train from Delhi to Attari, where all passengers are on fire for customs and immigration. This train has no commercial stops between Delhi and Attari. It is falsely called Samjhauta Express and is officially known as the Delhi-Attari or Attari-Delhi Express. The Samjhauta Express runs from Attari to Lahore, although passengers are screened at Wagah, the first station on the Pakistani side. Rail traffic was established by an agreement between Indian Railways (IR) and Pakistan Railways (PR) to alternately use an Indian rake and a Pakistani rake and a locomotive for the train, six months at the end. On 30 December 2010, India`s National Investigation Agency claimed that it had strong evidence that Swami Aseemanand was behind the explosions. He had the help of his friend Sandeep Dange, a graduate engineer and did graduate studies in physics, and Ramji Kalsangra, an electrician to build the improvised explosive devices used in the explosions. [10] On 8 January 2011, Aseemanand allegedly confessed to the attack on Samjhauta Express,[12] a statement which was later obtained under duress. [13] Later, the Hindu nationalist group RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) sent a legal opinion to the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) accusing it of deliberately leaking Swami Aseemanand`s confessions to the media. RSS spokesman Ram Madhav called the investigation a wall of denials of organizations and individuals.

On the Indian side, the train runs from Delhi to Attari and from Lahore to Wagah on the Pakistani side. The train called after the Hindi word for “agreement” consists of six sleeper cars and an AC-3 class trainer. Train traffic began on July 22, 1976 as part of the Simla Agreement, which ended the war between the two nations in 1971. Until the reopening of the Thar Express, it was the only rail link between the two countries. The train was launched on 22 July 1976 as a result of the Shimla Agreement and travelled between Amritsar and Lahore, at a distance of approximately 52 km. After riots in Punjab in the late 1980s, for security reasons Indian Railways decided to end service at Attari, where customs services and immigration take place. On April 14, 2000, an agreement between Indian Railways and Pakistan Railways (PR) revised the line to nearly three kilometres. Samjhauta Express is also known as the Friendship Express. It`s a twice-train. The word Samjhauta means “agreement,” “agreement” and “compromise” in Hindi and Urdu.
