Srinagar: A group of stone pelters attacked Karvan-e-Aman, the weekly bus to Muzaffarabad in PoK, at Palhalan near Pattan in Baramulla district of north Kashmir on Thursday. This is first such attack on cross-border bus service which was started on April 7, 2005 as a confidence building measure. The state road transport corporation bus was carrying 31 passengers. Police said a resident of Muzaffarabad, Abdul Aziz Gania, was hit in the leg by a glass shard after one of the windows of the bus was hit by a stone. A youth was injured when police fired teargas shells to chase away the stone pelters. The youth was taken to a hospital where his condition was described as stable. With its window panes broken, the bus was abandoned and the passengers were taken to Uri in police and other government vehicles from where they walked across the aman setu (peace bridge) to PoK, the police said.
