116 stranded Muzaffarabad residents to return home


Jammu, Aug 21: A total of 116 people who had come from the Pakistan-administered Kashmir and got stranded in Jammu and Kashmir will return home on Monday through Kaman Post on the Line of Control (LoC) in Baramulla district.

Officials at the Chakan Da Bagh Trade and Travel Facilitation Centre in Poonch district said the 116 people had come to meet their relatives in the Kashmir Valley.

There has been no cross-LoC trade or travel through Chakan Da Bagh crossing since July 10 because of heightened tensions between the Indian and Pakistan Armies.

“These passengers left Poonch town in several buses for the Valley,” an official said. “They will cross the Aman Setu (Peace Bridge) in Uri sector. At the same time, three residents of Jammu and Kashmir will also return home from the other side,” an official said.
