PoK traders return 21 truck goods

Excelsior Correspondent
POONCH, May 8: Amidst long drama at Chakkan-da-Bagh LoC point in Poonch, the traders from Pak Occupied Kashmir (PoK), returned 21 trucks loaded with goods (dry chillies) to the Indian traders today.
They retained hardly two trucks out of total 23, alleging that goods were of low quality. The value of the goods sent on that side was put at around Rs 6.31 lakh.
Out of the 11 trucks loaded with goods which arrived here today, three of them were sent back by the Indian traders on the similar charges. The goods worth Rs 98.28 lakh including dry dates, grapes ( Kishmish), almonds came from the PoK side.
It may be recalled that the trade at this LoC point was resumed after the gap of two weeks. It was resumed today after foreign secretary level talks between the two countries. But today’s experience at the LoC point has indicated that cross LoC trade could be suspended again at any time.
