Attari: The Samjhauta Express and other buses running between India and Pakistan were cancelled on Monday as the rail and land routes connecting the countries were hit by the ongoing Jat reservation stir.

Samjhauta Express, that was scheduled to arrive in India from Wagah railway station of Lahore, was cancelled today. The Pakistan railway authority was informed well in time about the disruption of rail traffic in India due to massive protests on the railway tracks and GT Road National Highway, an official said.

He added the Delhi-Attari special train, which was also scheduled today, has been cancelled.

Two bus services between Delhi and Lahore were also cancelled owing to the road block in Haryana, the official said.
