Srinagar: The weekly Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, was suspended on Monday as a precautionary measure, official sources said.
”We have got a message from PaK that there will be no bus service today (Monday),” official sources said.
The message said that on Monday was a national holiday in Pakistan, where people observe February 5 every year as “Kashmir solidarity day”, they said.
The weekly bus, introduced in 2005, has helped thousands of families divided in 1947 to meet each other.
However, only state subjects from both sides are eligible to travel in the bus on ” travel permits” instead of Passports, provided their names are cleared from the intelligence agencies from both the countries.
