Maitree Express, running between Kolkata and Dhaka, will not make its weekend trips this week on account of Eid.

A decision to cancel the weekend trips of the bi-weekly train, leaving Kolkata Sept 11 and returning from Dhaka the following day, has been taken on the request of Bangladesh Railway, said an official statement on Tuesday.

"The decision to cancel Maitree Express trips on Saturday and Sunday has been taken to avoid avoid operational complications arising due to non-running of trains in Bangladesh on Eid days," the statement said.

Normal services of the train will resume thereafter, it added.

Maitree Express normally leaves Kolkata on every Saturday and Wednesday, and returns from Dhaka every Sunday and Tuesday.
