Pakistan said on Friday it will halt the last train service running to India after New Delhi revoked special status for its portion of the Kashmir region claimed by both countries.

"We have decided to shut down the Thar Express as well," Pakistan's railway's minister Sheikh Rasheed told reporters, in reference to the weekly service running between the towns of Khokrapar in Pakistan and Monabao in India.

"As long as I am railway minister, no train will operate between Pakistan and India."
