Cross-LoC bus service between India and Pakistan remained suspended for third consecutive week at the Chakan da Bagh crossing point in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday.

The bus service, a major Confidence Building Measure (CBM) between India and Pakistan after 1999 Kargil War, continued despite summer uprising of 2016 and tension on the LoC, due to ceasefire violation.

The cross-LoC bus service which started on April 7, 2005 has helped thousands of families to meet each other after India and Pakistan agreed to allow travel of state subjects from both sides on travel permits, instead of international passport.
