No breakthrough on LoC deadlock

Drivers interrogation report handed to PcK officials: DC Baramulla

SRINAGAR: In yet another round of meeting between authorities; India and Pakistan on Tuesday failed to break around three weeks’ deadlock over the cross-LoC trade.  

Deputy Commissioner Baramulla, Khwaja Ghulam Ahmad who along with Custodian Trade Showkat Ahmad Mir and SDM Uri Abdul Aziz Shiekh met their Pakistani counterpart led by Brigadier Ismail Khan said the meeting failed to reach any conclusion as the PcK authorities were adamant on release of their detained truck driver. “However we exchanged some official documents including the interrogation report of the arrested driver” he said.

Ahmed added that he conveyed to PcK authorities that the driver can’t be handed over to them because the matter is in judicial domain. 

“I told them that the matter is no more under the control of administration and but under judicial domain. The PAK authorities said that the authorities on this side should arrange bail for the detained driver. But I told them that it was upto the court to decide the matter,” DC Baramulla added.
