Srinagar: Thirty-three persons including eight fresh visitors from Pakistan administered Kashmir crossed over the Line of Control through Karvan-e-Aman bus service on Thursday, official sources told Press Bureau of India.
They said 12 persons were board the â€˜peace busâ€™ when it arrived here and included eight fresh visitors from Pak, who are meeting their relatives first time after separation in 1947. Â Four persons from this side of the divide also returned home after stipulated stay in Pak, they said.
The passengers travelled from Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pak, to Chakoti, near the LoC in Uri town of north Kashmir. As a part of procedure, the travellers alighted from the bus and crossed the Aman Setu (Peace Bridge) on foot.
