9 guests from PaK arrive, 4 Kashmiris cross over to other side of LoC

Srinagar, Apr 30: As many as nine guests from Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK) arrived here, while four Kashmiris crossed over to the other side of the Line of Control (LoC) in the weekly Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad.
As many as 23 returnees also crossed sides at the Kaman Post, in Uri sector, official sources said on Monday afternoon.
They said nine residents of PaK, including five women and two children, arrived at Kaman Post after crossing the Aman Setu, peace bridge, on foot to meet their relatives, separated in 1947 due to partition.
As many as 11 Kashmiris, including four women and a child, who had gone to PaK in previous buses, also returned after completing their stay there.
They said four Kashmiris, including two women and a child, crossed over to the other side of LoC in the weekly bus. “As many as 12 PaK residents, who had arrived in previous buses to meet their relatives, returned to their home after completing their stay here,” they added.
The inter cross-LoC bus service was one of the major Confidence Building Measure (CBM) taken by India and Pakistan after both the countries agreed for a ceasefire on LoC and International Border in Jammu and Kashmir in 2003.
