Karvan-e-Aman bus between Srinagar-POK resumes

SRINAGAR: The Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) resumed on Monday after remaining suspended last week, official sources said.
The weekly bus left Srinagar this morning for Kaman post, the last Indian military post on this side of the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector to cross over to POK, sources said.
They said the bus has since reached Trade Facilitation Centre (TFC), Uri and will proceed towards the Kaman post. However, the number of passengers travelling to PoK in the peace bus would be known in the afternoon, they said.
Similarly, passengers travelling from PoK to Srinagar will also be known in the afternoon, they added. The bus could not operate last week after a message was received from PoK, where people observed martyrs day.
The bus service, introduced as one of the major Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) between India and Pakistan on April 7, 2005, has helped thousands of families divided in 1947 to meet each other. (agencies)
