The weekly Karwan-e-Aman bus service operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad Pakistan will not be running today on Monday for security reasons following a shutdown in Kashmir against any move to weaken the Article 35A, officials said.
“We have received an advisory late Sunday night to suspend the peace bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad for security reasons today,” an official said.
He said that all the passengers who were scheduled to travel in the bus on Monday have been informed about the cancellation of the bus.
They will be now adjusted in the bus, next week, he said.
The weekly bus service has helped thousands of divided families to meet each other since April 7, 2005, when India and Pakistan agreed to allow state subjects from both sides to travel on ” Travel Permits”, instead of International Passports.
Meanwhile, reports coming from North Kashmir’s Uri said that the area is observing complete shutdown.
