No Karvan-e-Aman bus run in view of Eid-ul-Fitr

The Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) has been suspended today in view of the Eid-ul-Fitr festival on July 6 or 7.
This is the third time the bus service, ferrying members of families divided in 1947 due to partition, has been suspended this year.
The bus service has been suspended today after both the sides mutually agreed in view of the Eid festival, official sources said.
They said the passengers, who have booked to travel by the bus, have also been informed accordingly.
The cross-Line of Control (LoC) bus service was suspended on March 14 this year due to landslides on the other side of the border while on April 4 the bus run was halted on the anniversary of former Pakistan Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutoo.
The weekly bus service has helped thousands of divided families to meet each other since April 7, 2005 when India and Pakistan agreed to allow state subjects from both sides to travel on ” Travel Permits”, instead of International Passports
