Following the revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, India's nuclear-armed neighbour Pakistan has suspended the Samjhauta Express.

This is Pakistan's latest move to act against the interests of India after the Narendra Modi-led BJP government abrogated provisions of Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, bifurcating the state into union territories -- Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Pakistan's Railway minister Sheikh Rasheed has taken to Twitter to confirm the suspension of the Samjhauta Express.

Earlier on Wednesday, former Pakistan president General Pervez Musharraf condemned India's move on Article 370 revocation and Jammu and Kashmir bifurcation. He said Pakistan rejects this act and the world should not accept it. "I condemn the unilateral action of India of dismantling UN-recognized status of Kashmir. Pakistan rejects this act & I know the world should not accept this & hold India accountable for its atrocities against the innocent people of Kashmir who are fighting for their survival. PM," Pervez Musharraf tweeted.

Pakistan expels Indian envoy, suspends trade

Pakistan also expelled Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria and suspended all bilateral ties earlier on Wednesday. This was in response to New Delhi's decision to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

According to trade observers, the ban on trade will hurt Pakistani traders more than it will affect Indians as India doesn't depend much on Pakistan for exports.
