Help stranded Pakistanis to return home, India urged

Islamabad, Feb 22 (IANS) Pakistan has urged Indian authorities to help Pakistanis stranded in India due to the suspension of bus and train services between the two countries to return home.

Radio Pakistan on Monday quoted the Foreign Office as saying that the Pakistani high commission in New Delhi was in touch with Indian officials seeking assistance for the stranded Pakistanis.

Foreign office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said the Samjhauta Express train and Dosti bus service were suspended following widespread protests in Haryana that have cut off road and rail links to Delhi.

This has created problems for Pakistanis currently in India and intending to return home, the official said.

The Indian high commission in Islamabad had also sought help for Indians stranded in Pakistan so that they could return home, the report said.
