Lahore-Delhi bus ‘Sada-e-Sarhad’ carrying seven passengers from Pakistan, including three women, was stranded at Fatehgarh Sahib in the wake of ongoing Jat stir for quota in Haryana.

The New Delhi-bound bus had to be stopped at Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib on Delhi-Amritsar road yesterday in view of road blockades on National highway in Haryana, police said.

Seven passengers including three women were travelling in the bus, a senior official of Fatehagarh Sahib police said on Sunday.

The road and rail services through Haryana destined to neighbouring states, including Delhi, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan and Chandigarh remained disrupted on most routes in the wake of continuing blockade.
