POONCH: Cross-LoC bus service resumed today with 56 PoK nationals arriving here for the first time since it was disrupted on September 15 due to floods followed by ceasefire violations by Pakistan.    

The PoK nationals arrived via the Chakan-Da-Bagh Crossing Point here, district officials said.           

A total of 101 people from the two sides travelled on the Rawalakote-Poonch LoC Road, they said.    

38 Pakistan nationals, who had come here last month on permit, returned to their country. The bus to PoK did not have any fresh Indian national on board, they said.      

Apart from the 56 PoK nationals who came here, seven Indians also returned to their homes in Jammu and Kashmir after staying there with their relatives for some time, they said.         

Cross-LoC travel and trade has been disrupted since September 15 due to floods followed by firing by Pakistan.
