After remaining suspended for 8 weeks, the Cross Line of Control peace bus service 'Karvan-e-Aman' (Caravan of Peace) operated on Monday. The bus service had remained suspended due to the repairing work on the Aman Setu bridge in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district.
The bridge is used by passengers from the two sides of the LoC for commuting.

Officials said three residents of Pakistan occupied kashmir (PoK) returned home today while no fresh passenger used the bus service from either side of the LoC today.
Initiated in April 2005, the peace bus service was a CBM between India and Pakistan to re-unite members of divided families living on the two sides of the Line of Control.
The bus service was later followed by cross-LoC trade.
The Union Home Ministry recently banned this trade saying it was being used for trading narcotics, hawala money and for sending weapons into the state.
