Srinagar: The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad Karvan-e-Aman bus service will not ply today owing to Milad celebrations.
Officials said those who were scheduled to travel in the bus today, have been informed after India and Pakistan agreed to cancel the bus today.
Despite the uprising since July 9 in Kashmir, the bus continued to ply as per schedules. On July 11 and 18, the bus could not operate for security reasons while on July 4 and September 12, it did not run in the wake of Eid festivals.
The bus service has helped thousands of families separated due to partition in 1947 to meet each other after India and Pakistan agreed to allow travel of state subjects from both sides on travel permits, instead of international passports.
