Poonch: The cross-LoC bus service between Poonch and Rawalakot in Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK) was suspended on Monday by the authorities here in the wake of firing and shelling by the Pakistan Army, officials said.
The travel across the Line of Control (LoC) was scheduled for Monday.
The shelling by the Pakistan Army damaged the two-storey administrative block of Trade Facilitation Centre (TFC) and police barracks at Chakan-Da-Bagh, which is the point for crossing of the bus and trade exchange at the LoC.
“There has been Pakistan shelling overnight. As a precautionary measure, cross-LoC bus service from here has been suspended,” said an officer connected with the LoC travel.
In the shelling, the TFC and police barracks suffered damages at Chakan-Da-Bagh, a police officer said. However, no one was injured in the firing and shelling, he added.
