Srinagar, Nov 6 (UNI) As many as 71 passengers crossed sides at the ''Kaman Aman Setu (Peace Bridge)'' along the Line of Control (LoC) on board the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus today, official sources said.

Altogether 57 passengers -- 14 fresh and 43 returnee -- left here for Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) on board the ''Karvaan-e-Aman (Caravan of Peace)''.

Similarly, 4 fresh and 10 returnee passengers arrived here from Muzaffarabad.

The cross-border bus service between the divided Kashmir was launched by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh from here on April 7 2005 after nearly 58 years following an agreement reached between India and Pakistan to allow families, separated since 1947, to meet each other.
