New Delhi: Pakistan has suspended a bus service between Poonch and Rawalkote in PoK in the wake of the tension concerning firing across LoC, said reports.

The bus service, called Karvan-e-Aman (caravan of peace), ran once a week.

The bus, which was supposed to run on Monday, will not run on that day.

"We have received a call from across the border that both trade and travel will remain suspended till further communication," said Jatinder Singh, additional district commissioner, Poonch, DNA said.

More than 60 trucks are stranded at the border awaiting permission to enter PoK.
