Phagwara: The Delhi-Lahore bus was Friday stopped by activists of a little-known outfit in protest against the dual terror attack in Jammu, in which 10 persons including an Army officer were killed.
The Indian bus Sada-e-Sarhad was stopped at the Sugar Mill Chowk located on the Delhi-Amritsar National Highway by activists of Shiv Sena (Hindustan), who raised slogans against Pakistan over yesterday`s terror attack in Jammu region, police sources said.
The Police Escort accompanying the bus kept the protestors at a distance from the bus to ensure safety of the Lahore-bound passengers, they said.
The security personnel accompanying the bus as its Pilot and Escort, joined by City SHO Inspector Ravinder Singh and local police officers, cordoned off the frightened bus passengers who were not harmed by the protesters.
The protesters, who let the bus pass after a short period, continued disrupting traffic for some time even after the bus had left, they said.
They demanded snapping of ties with Pakistan, including discontinuation of rail and road services.
They also demanded calling off proposed dialogue of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in America.
Meanwhile, when contacted, SHO Ravinder Singh said there was brief protest by Shiv Sena (H), but the Indo-Pak bus passed smoothly after that.
Dressed in army fatigues, terrorists stormed a police station and then an army camp in Jammu region killing 10 people in twin `fidayeen` attacks after they sneaked in from across the border yesterday.
