The departure of Thar Express train from the southern Pakistani city of Karachi to India was delayed by a day due to a breach in the tracks on the Indian side.

The departure of the train, which was scheduled to leave on Friday night, was delayed at the request of the Indian Railways as the tracks were breached because of heavy rains, officials of the Pakistan Railways Karachi division said.

The Indian Railways also informed their Pakistani counterpart that the departure of the train might be further delayed in case heavy rains continued on the Indian side.

Officials of Pakistan Railways said the Thar Express will leave Karachi on Saturday night if conditions improve.
