Cross LoC Karvan-e-Aman bus to PoK delayed

SRINAGAR : The Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) was delayed today as the Red Bridge on the other side of the Line of Control (LoC) was under water.
Official sources told that due to heavy rain and snow during the past 24 hours, the Red Bridge on other side of the LoC in Uri sector was under water.
The weekly bus service was delayed, they said, adding that in case there is improvement in the water level, the bus, carrying members of families divided in 1947 due to partition, will be allowed to operate.
However, sources said there was almost no chance of bus run as the water level near the bridge was very high. Final decision will be taken later in the day.
The cross LoC bus, which started on April 7, 2005, has helped thousands of families, divided in 1947 to meet each other after India and Pakistan agreed to allow travel of state subjects on ”Travel Permits” instead of International passports despite opposition by militant organisations. (UNI)
