Srinagar: The ‘Karvan-e-Aman’ bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, was suspended Monday, sources said.
The weekly bus has been suspended between the two sides of the LoC after a message was received from Pakistan that there is a holiday in PaK on account of 14th death anniversary of founding President of PaK Sardar Mohammad Ibrahim Khan, official sources said.
They said all those who were scheduled to travel in the bus from this side have accordingly been informed.
The cross-LoC bus service started on April 7, 2005 and it has helped thousands of families, divided in 1947 due to partition, to meet each other after India and Pakistan agreed to allow travel of State subjects from both sides on travel permits, instead of international passport.
Meanwhile, the cross-Line of Control (LoC) trade remained grounded since July 21 when over 60 kg of drugs were recovered from a truck at Trade Facilitation Centre (TFC) in Uri, sources said.
