Cross-LoC bus service suspended between Poonch and Rawalakot


Jammu, March 4  The trans-Line of Control bus service between Poonch and Rawalakot in divided Kashmir was suspended on Monday after Pakistan Army refused to open gates on the Zero Point.

Poonch lies in India while Rawalakot is in Pakistan-controlled part.

“The cross LoC bus carrying passengers left Chakan Da Bagh (Poonch) for Rawalakot today, but after Pakistan Army did not open the gate on the Zero Point, the bus had to return to Chakan Da Bagh”, said an official.

The suspension of cross-LoC bus service comes at a time when the Samjhauta express train service between Lahore and Delhi was resumed. – IANS
