Wedding party permitted on highway after thorough frisking » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, April 06 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities today granted a family from Islamabad town the permission to travel on the Srinagar-Jammu highway on Sunday, one of the two days in a week when civilian traffic on the thoroughfare has been banned.

The family on Friday had to run from pillar to post to seek permission for travelling to Doda to the home of their son’s bride. The authorities allowed 12 persons to accompany the groom – Danish Ali – to travel but said the 12-member marriage party would travel in four vehicles and will be allowed to move only after proper frisking and security check-up.

The family, leaving the preparations midway, had to move the application to the deputy commissioner and moved from one office to another for getting the permission on Friday.

The family first visited the office of Deputy Commissioner of Islamabad and submitted an application for grant of permission to ply on the highway to reach the bride’s home in Doda district. The deputy commissioner marked the application to additional deputy commissioner who in turn forwarded it to senior superintendent of police of the district, seeking report positively to allow the family to ply four vehicles for the marriage ceremony on Sunday.
