SRINAGAR : The movement of goods between the two sides of Kashmir on Thursday came to a halt following shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district as reported by a local daily.

The trade authorities in Uri said they have decided to stop the movement of goods between the two parts of Kashmir today.
