Protestors stop Delhi-Lahore bus near Amritsar

Amritsar, Aug 9 : Protestors stopped the Delhi-Lahore bus briefly near this Punjab city Friday to protest the killing of five soldiers by Pakistan Army in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch earlier this week.

The protestors, led by Punjab Youth Congress president Vikram Chaudhary, stopped the Sada-e-Sarhad friendship bus on the Amritsar-Attari road near here.

The bus, which moves with pilot and escort vehicles through its journey from Delhi via Haryana and Punjab till Attari, was stopped for a few minutes before police reinforcements rushed to the spot and dispersed the protestors.

The bus resumed its journey after the brief hold-up.

The bus services from Delhi and Lahore have been diverted from its route in the past two days due to protests at Phagwara town, 130 km from Chandigarh.
