Karvan-e-Aman bus to PaK cancelled in view of Eid

The Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK), was cancelled on Monday in view of the Eid-ul-Fitr, reports said.

The weekly bus will not operate today, the reports added.

A message was received from PaK that bus cannot operate in view of the Eid celebrations, the reports said.

The passengers, including PaK residents, who had come here and celebrated Eid with their relatives, separated in 1947 due to partition will be accommodated in the next bus.

The cross-Line of Control (LoC), one of the major Confidence Building Measure (CBM) taken by India and Pakistan after partition, was introduced onĀ 7 April 2005.

The service has helped thousands of families divided in 1947 to meet each other. However, only state subjects from both sides of LoC are eligible to travel in the bus on travel permits instead of International passport provided their names are cleared by the intelligence agencies from both the countries.

Earlier, separated families from both sides were to travel through Wagah border on International passports.
