London: Mirpur in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir will now be directly linked by road with the United Kingdom through a direct bus service, says a report.
A new 4,000-mile bus route connecting the city Birmingham, will pass through seven countries, including Iran, before finally reaching its destination, also known as ‘Little Birmingham’.
Passengers embarking on the epic 12-day journey are likely to be charged GBP 130 for a ticket, the Daily Mirror reports.
The service is definitely good news for the people of Birmingham, which is home to the world’s largest population of Kashmiri expats.
According to the report, security concerns have, however, been raised about the route, which will stop over at Quetta, Pakistan.
Top Taliban commanders are said to be hiding in the volatile city, near the Afghan border.
