Srinagar-Muzaffarbad bus service to resume tomorrow


Srinagar: The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service will resume tomorrow after remaining suspended for two weeks in view of the unrest in Valley that has left 45 people dead and 3,400 others injured.

“The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus, also known as Karwan-e- Aman (Peace Caravan), service will resume its weekly operations from tomorrow,” a police official said.

Passengers travelling across the Line of Control by the bus have been asked to report at SRTC Yard, Bemina, at 3 AM, he said.

The bus service was suspended in the wake of violent protests in the Valley following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani by security forces on July 8.

The violence left a total of 45 people dead but the Valley has been calm for a few days.

The bus service was started in April 2005 as part of the confidence building measures between New Delhi and Islamabad.
