JASHORE: Bandhan Express will make a three-minute stoppage at Jashore Railway Junction from Thursday (March 7), allowing passengers to get on and off the train during their journey to and from Kolkata, reports UNB.

The Bandhan Express is an international passenger train which runs between Kolkata and Khulna once a week from either direction.

The train reaches Khulna from Kolkata at 12:30pm on Thursday and departs for Kolkata at 1:30pm on the same day. It takes only four and half hours to reach Kolkata from Khulna. The train was inaugurated on November 16, 2017 in a bid to ease communication between the two neighbouring countries.

The stoppage of the train at the Jashore station was introduced following a demand by the locals.
