Despite heightened tensions between India and Pakistan in the wake of the Uri terror attack, the peace bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad, known as ‘Karvan-e-Aman’, was operated on Monday.

Escorted by heavy convoy of security forces, the scheduled run of the peace bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad was operated carrying members of the divided families between the two parts of divided Kashmir.

The State Road Transport Corporation (SRTC)-owned bus headed for Muzaffarabad, in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, was in fact the only civilian vehicle to be allowed to pass through Uri town after Sunday’s terror strike in which 17 soldiers were killed and 30 others injured.
