Special Indian trains for cricket fans

NEW DELHI: Indian Railways will run special trains from a border town to carry the thousands of Pakistani cricket fans traveling to watch their team contest next week's first test against India at northern Indian town of Mohali.

After crossing the India-Pakistan land border at Wagah, either by train or by foot, the fans can board two special trains at India's Attari railroad station on March 6 and March 7 en route to the match, Rajeev Saksena, a railroad spokesman said Thursday.

The first match of the three-test and six limited-overs internationals series starts March 8.

The special trains will also be available to carry the Pakistanis back to the border at the conclusion of the first test on March 12.

The Indian High Commission in Pakistan already has established a special visa camp in Lahore to expedite the fans' visits to India. Visas are also available in other major Pakistan cities in Punjab province and the capital Islamabad. --AP
