India has asked Pakistan to return the Samjhauta Express rake lying at Wagah for the past five months, following the suspension of train services due to tense relations between the two countries after nullification of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, officials said on Tuesday.

Indian Railways officials said the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has already conveyed the request to Islamabad.

"On our [Railways] request, the MEA has asked Pakistan authorities to return our rake as soon as possible," a senior railway official told PTI.
