Srinagar: The Karavan-e-Aman weekly bus service across the Line of Control on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road resumed on Monday, a week after it was suspended.
Trade on this route is also scheduled to resume on Tuesday.
“The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service operated today after an agreement reached with authorities from Pakistan-administrated Kashmir last week,” an official said here.
He said 116 passengers boarded the bus bound for Muzaffarabad, the capital of PaK, this morning.
“It includes 110 residents of PaK who are returning home after spending time with their relatives here, while six persons from Jammu and Kashmir are going to meet their relatives on the other side of LoC,” he said.
Trade on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road was suspended two weeks ago, following the recovery of 66.5 kg of heroin and brown sugar, valued at over Rs 300 crore, from a truck coming from PaK on July 21.
The impasse was resolved at a meeting between officials of the two sides held at Kaman Post last week.
