Intra-Kashmir trade resumes after six days


The Intra-Kashmir trade service resumed on Wednesday night after six days of its suspension at the Chakothi crossing point.

The trade service was suspended after authorities in Indian-occupied Kashmir levelled allegations of drug smuggling. It was suspended when a truck from Azad Kashmir was stopped by Indian authorities allegedly said to be carrying heroin.

According to Director General Azad Kashmir Trade and Travel Authority (TATA) Brigadier (r)Imtiaz Wayen, 50 trucks from AJK and 21 from Jammu and Kashmir will return on Wednesday night.
