The Thar Express to Karachi left Bhagat ki Kothi station here at its scheduled time at 1 am Saturday, officials said, amid apprehension that its run may end a few hours later at Munabao, the last station on the Indian side of the border.
On Friday, Pakistan’s Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed announced in Islamabad that this would be the last Jodhpur-Karachi train.
But as the passengers got aboard the train at Jodhpur’s Bhagat ki Kothi station, there were concerns that the journey could even end at Munabao in Rajasthan’s Barmer district, the border station it was scheduled to reach at 7 am.
