The operation of Samjhauta Express, suspended due to protests in Indian state of Haryana, has resumed today.
Samjhauta Express carrying 107 passengers left for Attari through Wagah Border on Thursday morning.
The trans-border Samjhauta Express, running between Delhi and Lahore has a capacity of up to 500 passengers.
Train and bus services between India and Pakistan were suspended following widespread protests by the Jat community in Haryana that have cut off road and rail links to Delhi.
Earlier, Dosti Bus service restarted its service on Wednesday.
Fresh rioting and arson erupted in India’s Haryana state in caste protests that had left more than 20 people dead, and New Delhi faced a water crisis after mobs shut down a key supply.
Thousands of troops with shoot-on-sight orders were deployed in Haryana after week-long protests turned violent, with rioters setting fire to homes and railway stations and blocking highways.
The Jat rural caste led the protests, demanding quotas be set for Jats for highly sought-after government jobs and for university places. Caste members say they are struggling to find places despite India’s strong economic growth.
India reserves places for lower castes to try to bring victims of the country’s worst discrimination into the mainstream. But the government policy causes resentment among other communities, who say it freezes them out.
The latest protests echo caste violence that swept the western state of Gujarat in August last year, leaving several dead.
That state saw weeks of protests by the Patidar or Patel caste, who demanded the same treatment afforded to lower castes.
