‘Karvan-e-Aman’ resumes after two weeks
The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service, also known as ‘Karvan-e-Aman’ was Monday resumed after remaining suspended for two weeks due to ‘anti-militancy operation’ launched by the Army in many villages of Uri sector of North Kashmir.
Sub-divisional Magistrate Uri, D Sagar told Kashmir Vision, “At least 59 passengers crossed from here to Muzaffarabad. Those include 14 fresh and 45 returnees.”
He said that at least 47 passengers including 29 fresh and 18 returnees came from Muzaffarabad.
The Karvan-e-Aman was suspended on May 01 following an ‘anti-militancy operation’ launched by the Army in many villages of Uri sector of north Kashmir after the inputs of the presence of militants in these areas.
Pertinently, the bus service was launched in April 2005 as a confidence building measure between India and Pakistan to facilitate the meeting between families divided by the LoC.
