SRINAGAR: The Karavan-e-Aman (Peace Caravan) weekly bus service on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road across the Line of Control was suspended for a day today.

"The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service which was scheduled to operate today has been suspended. Pakistan-occupied Kashmir authorities told us that the service has been suspended for today due to a public holiday there," a senior official said.

The trade on Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road was suspended last week following the recovery of 66.5 kg of heroin and brown sugar valued at over Rs 300 crore from a truck coming from PoK on July 21.

There is no clarity yet if the trade, which is held on barter basis from Tuesday to Friday every week, will take place tomorrow.
