Brown Sugar Haul: Baramulla Waits a Call from PaK

KL Report


District authorities Baramulla were expecting a phone call from Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) on Tuesday to end the stalemate on the cross LoC trade after brown sugar was seized from a truck of PaK, official sources said.

However, they added “the phone call did not come.”

Trade across the Line of Control (LoC) is suspended ever since hundreds of brown sugar packets were recovered from a truck of PaK.

Official sources told Kashmir Life that district authorities Baramulla had a “cordial” meeting with their counterparts from PaK yesterday.

“The PaK authorities informed us that they don’t want the accused driver but evidences so that the accused can be prosecuted there,” sources said.

They added “They (PaK) authorities want disposal of the case and it’s time bound enquiry.”

The officials said that PaK authorities are very much interested in the Cross LoC trade and want its resumption.

“They (PaK) authorities had assured us a phone call today to end the stalemate but we have not received any such call from the other side so far,” official sources said.

Sources added that a police team is all set to go to Punjab and meet the trader for whom the consignment was meant.
