Cross Line of Control (LoC) trade on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad route resumed here on Wednesday after remaining suspended for over a month.


According to sources the trade was resumed in the morning from Salamabad near Uri to Chakothi Road in Azad Kashmir.

The trade was suspended over a month after the Jammu and Kashmir Police claimed that they arrested a driver from Pakistan along with 114 packets of brown sugar worth crores in international market.

Meanwhile, an official from Salamabad Trade Facilitation Centre, Uri told IBNS that stranded trade was finally resumed Wednesday morning.

He further said that after several meetings, the Pakistan authorities agreed to start trade again.

Pertinently, the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service was also effected because of the drug controversy.

Later, bus service was resumed last month after intervention of the state administration.
