Jammu: Over 50 residents of Pakistan- administered Kashmir (PaK) travelled by a cross-LoC bus to reach Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district today, officials said.
The bus service had on November 6 resumed operations after remaining suspended for nearly four months owing to heavy shelling by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in Poonch district.
“As many as 54 PaK residents travelled to this side through Chakan-Da-Bagh. The bus plied empty from this side,” the officials said.
After resumption of the service last week, only 20 PaK residents had travelled by the bus.
The bus service was suspended on July 10 after heavy shelling by Pakistan which also forced suspension of the trade which usually takes place for four days a week beginning Tuesday.
