`Karvan-e-Aman` bus service resumes
Srinagar: `Karvan-e-Aman` (peace carvan), the weekly bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, resumed on Monday after remaining suspended for the past two weeks due to heavy snowfall.
The bus service resumed with 42 passengers crossing over to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) from this side while 36 travelled from there, official sources said.
The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service and the cross-LoC trade had remained suspended since January 16 following heavy snowfall and avalanche warnings.
The sources said the trade between the two divided parts of Kashmir will resume tomorrow.
The bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, started in April 2005 to facilitate meeting of divided families and was billed as the `mother of all confidence-building measures` aimed at restoring peace in the state.
