The weekly Karvan-e-Aman bus, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-adminstered Kashmir (PaK), left here this day morning to cross over to the other side of Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector despite shelling from Pakistan in which a boy was killed and five others injured in Poonch on Monday morning.
The bus left from here in the morning for Kaman post, the last Indian military post on this side of the LoC despite fresh shelling by Pakistani troops in Shahpore sector in Poonch in which nine-year-old Irfan Ahmad was killed and five others were injured early morning.
