May 02, 2005 17:29 IST

Pakistan has cleared a list of 20 people who will travel by the third bus from Srinagar to Muzafarrabad in Pakistan occupied Kashmir on May 5, sources said on Monday.

However, only 17 people are likely to board the bus as three have cited prior commitments and dropped out of the journey, they said.

The central government has cleared the names of 46 people to travel to Jammu from Muzaffarabad.

The historic bus service was started on April 7 from Srinagar.

The second Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus rolled out on April 21 with 22 passengers on board though a list of 30 people had been cleared by Pakistan, the sources said. They added that eight people opted out on health and other grounds though it was felt it was due to threats from militant outfits, they said.

The Al Nasreen, Al-Arifeen, Save Kashmir Movement and Khidam-ul-Milat have threatened people not to take the bus.
