Cross LoC trade resumes, Karwan-e-Aman bus remains suspended

Uri:  The cross-LoC trade via the border town of Uri resumed on Monday, officials said. However, the Karwaan-e-Aman bus remained suspended.

“Due to some law and order problems in Uri last Friday, trade couldn’t take place. Trade has been resumed today,” Deputy Commissioner Baramulla Nasir Ahmad Naqash told Free Press Kashmir.

He added, “We received a representation from the Traders Union LoC Salamabad, Uri to trade their perishable food items that were stuck in the trucks for the last few days.”

The cross-LoC trade takes place for four days in a week that includes Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday while the cross-LoC bus service plies on Monday and Saturday.

Sub-divisional Magistrate (SDM) Uri, D Sagar said that the trade between the two nations took place normally without any disruption.

“We received around 15 trucks from the other side of Line of Control while 35 trucks have crossed over from this side,” the SDM said.

“The trucks carried the perishable tomatoes that were stranded since last Friday,” he said.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Baramulla on 14-10-2017 has issued an order to the concerned officials to carry out the trade on Monday.

However, the weekly cross-LoC (Karvan-e-Aman) bus service, operating between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad remained suspended.

“We were informed that the bus will remain suspended because of the Diwali holiday,” said Station House Officer (SHO) Uri Tabrez Ahmad.
