Jammu, Jan 30 : Trade suspended between India and Pakistan after tension between two nations along the Line of Control, was resumed on Poonch-Rawlakote route after nearly three weeks, an official said here today.

''Six trucks arrived yesterday at Chakkan-da-Bagh Trade Facilitation Centre (TFC) in Poonch district on LoC from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK),'' the official added.

He said that no trucks crossed to Rawlakote (PoK) from this side adding, ''the trucks arrived in Poonch carried dry dates, onion and embroidery items worth Rs 31,93,377 for traders of this side.''

The cross-LoC trade at Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point was suspended since January 10 when the Pakistan Army had refused to open gates resulting in stranding of 25 PoK-bound trucks carrying goods mostly vegetables at Poonch.

The LoC bus service was also resumed on Monday on Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point after over fortnight long suspension.
