LAHORE: India on Monday temporarily suspended the bus service between Pakistan's Muzaffarabad and Indian-occupied Kashmir's Srinagar as New Delhi continues its blame game after the Pulwana attack.

A suicide car bomb ripped through a 70 vehicle convoy of occupying forces in Pulwama last week, killing at least 44 Indian paramilitary personnel.

 

The puppet government in occupied Kashmir also halted mutual trade with Azad Kashmir, suspending trade on both the sides of the Line of Control (LoC).
