The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service, which was suspended for two weeks in view of the unrest in Kashmir Valley that has left more than 70 people dead and 3,400 others injured, will resume tomorrow.

“The Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus, also known as Karwan-e- Aman (Peace Caravan), service will resume its weekly operations from tomorrow,” a police official was quoted by PTI.

Passengers travelling across the Line of Control by the bus have been asked to report at SRTC Yard, Bemina, at 3 AM, he said.

The bus service was suspended in the wake of violent protests in the Valley following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani by security forces on 8 July.
