Barisal Express

The Barisal Express was a railway train that was one of three train services running between India and Bangladesh (then East Pakistan). The train connected the Indian city of Kolkata (then Calcutta) with the city of Khulna in Bangladesh. The railway link was suspended at the outbreak of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965.


Prior to 1965, when war broke out between India and Pakistan, rail links existed between India and East Pakistan. Three trains ran between the two countries carrying goods and passengers: (1) East Bengal Express between Sealdah and Goalundo Ghat via Gede and Darshana, (2) East Bengal Mail between Sealdah and Parbatipur via Gede and Darshana, and (3) Barisal Express between Sealdah and Khulna via Petrapole-Benapole.[1][2]
