Lahore, Jan 7 (IBNS) Amid high tension brewing up following cross-border firing, Pakistan on Wednesday announced termination of the Delhi-Lahore bus service short of destination at Wagah border.

The Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has said the bus service is being restricted following 'terror threats.

This is for the first time  that the 'Dosti' bus service has been restricted after it began in March, 1999.

"The PTDC has shifted the entire bus operation at its sub-office at Wagah. Passengers leaving for New Delhi and Amritsar from Lahore will now have to catch the bus at Wagah. Similarly, those arriving to Lahore from across the border by the service will disembark at Wagah too," a PTDC official  said

.He said the decision followed  growing terror threats in Pakistan.

Earlier, police used to escort the 'Dosti' buses from Wagah to Lahore's Gulberg and Nankana Sahib terminals and from there to Wagah border.
