Around 200 Pakistani pilgrims headed for a Sufi shrine in Indian Punjab have been refused entry into India, a media report said on Friday.

The Pakistanis wanted to attend the annual Urs of Hazrat Mujaddid Alif Sani at Sirhind in Punjab, the Dawn reported.

When the pilgrims reached the Lahore railway station to board the Samjhauta Express, they were told India had not allowed their entry due to security reasons, the Dawn said.
