Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service cancelled once again

Written by: Staff

Srinagar, Mar 16 (UNI) The cross-border bus service between India and Pakistan was once again cancelled today on Islamabad's request due to landslides at various places along the Muzaffarabad-Chakothi road, official sources said.

They said the Pakistani authorities had intimated their Indian counterparts that due to some ''technical problems'' they were not ready for today's run of the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service.

''As such the Pakistani authorities requested for cancellation of today's run of the bus service,'' the sources added.

The Pakistani officials informed their Indian counterparts that there were landslides at various places between Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) capital Muzaffarabad and Chakothi, the last border point on the other sides of the Line of Control (LoC).

The landslides would take some time to be cleared, the Pakistani officials informed.

The trans-Kashmir bus service, launched on April 7 last year, was also cancelled on March two due to landslides on the Muzaffarabad- Chakothi road in PoK.
