‘Pakistan, India in contact over stranded citizens’

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office on Monday said Pakistan’s High Commission in New Delhi was in touch with Indian authorities for the assistance of stranded Pakistanis.

Foreign office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said the Samjhota Express train and Dosti bus services were suspended, which had created problems for the Pakistanis who were currently in India and intended to return home.

Similarly, the Indian High Commission had also requested for help to Indians stranded in Pakistan because of the suspension of bus and train service.

The visas of these Pakistanis and Indians are going to expire, but it has now been decided to extend their visas to facilitate them to return to their respective country after restoration of train and bus services.
