The cross-Line of Control (LoC) bus service between Chakan Da Bagh and Rawalakot was suspended on Monday due to tension in Poonch district. Indian and Pakistan armies traded heavy fire on the LoC in Gulpur, Kalmara and Chakan Da Bagh areas on Sunday and Monday.

Two persons, including an army soldier on leave and his wife, were killed and their two children injured on Sunday when Pakistan indulged in unprovoked heavy shelling and firing on civilian areas near the LoC.

The Pakistan Army also violated ceasefire in the district on Monday.

Custodian of Chakan Da Bagh trade facilitation centre Tanveer Ahmad confirmed the suspension of the bus service.

The bus service began in 2005 as a big Cross Border Movement between India and Pakistan to help members of divided families across the LoC meet each other.
