The weekly bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad had been suspended in view of Diwali festival, official sources said.
They said the service was suspended after the authorities in Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) and here agreed in view of the festival.
”We are suspending the service on big occasions, including Eid, Independence Days of both India and Pakistan as a precautionary measure,” they added.
All the passengers who were scheduled to travel in the bus were informed about the suspension of the bus service, sources said, adding they will be accommodated in next bus on October 23.
The weekly bus which ferries passengers from Pakistan administered Kashmir to here in Srinagar and vice versa was earlier suspended a few months ago due to border skirmish between India and Pakistan. However, it was later resumed after a series of meetings between the officials of two countries.
