JAMMU, Mar 14: The cross-LoC trade on Poonch-Rawalakot remained suspended for the second day today even as there was no report of ceasefire violation by Pakistan along the Line of Control.
It was suspended after five mortar shells hit the cross-LoC facilitation centre at Chakan-da-Bagh in Poonch district on Wednesday at around 12.30 pm, when the process of scanning of trucks was almost complete.
Though there were no casualties in the shelling, several sheds including the one housing the X-Ray scanner were damaged.
“The trade remained suspended for the second day and is likely to be resumed tomorrow (Friday),” custodian of LoC trade centre, Poonch, Fareed Kohli said.
