Cross LoC trade fails to resume
By Saleem Iqbal Qadri, Srinagar, Feb 20 : Cross Line of Control (LoC) trade on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad route failed to resume on Thursday.as though Indian and Pakistani authorities had agreed to resume trade but no Pakistani drivers with laden trucks arrived at the crossing point.
The trade service between the two parts of Kashmir was affected from Jan 17 after 114 packets of brown sugar were recovered from a truck carrying goods from Muzaffarabad to Uri. The Jammu and Kashmir Police arrested the driver from the Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PAK) along with his truck.
After three rounds of talks, the PaK authorities agreed to resume the bus service but remained adamant over their demand for release of the arrested driver.
The standoff between the two sides left 75 drivers, including 48 from PAK and 27 from Indian side of Kashmir, stranded on the either side of the LoC for many days.
However, Pakistan allowed the drivers to return following meetings between New Delhi and Islamabad to resume the service.
