'35 trucks barred from crossing over to Rawlakote'

Authorities on Friday disallowed 35 trucks carrying goods to cross over to Pakistan-administered Kashmir following India’s decision to suspend the cross-LoC trade.

Trade and travel facilitation authorities at the Chakan Da Bagh in Poonch district did not permit the trucks to cross over to Rawalakote in Pakistan.

“The trucks were not allowed to cross the LoC and the concerned traders were told to take back their goods,” an official said at Chakan Da Bagh.

Those engaged in the trade said trucks carrying goods booked by them in Pakistan-administered Kashmir have also not been allowed to come over on Friday.
