Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir authorities distributed 1,850 application forms among local residents to visit Pakistan. Hundreds of people want to visit their divided families across the Line of Control (LoC). Sources said the regional passport office in Srinagar distributed 650 application forms, while 1,200 forms were sent to people in remote areas. The office receives between 30 to 50 completed forms daily. Presently, people are not allowed to collectively complete and deposit the applications. A decision on officially allowing separatists to send relief across the LoC will be taken soon, said sources. The Hurriyat Conference (G) Democratic Liberation Party, National Front, Salvation Movement and Hurriyat Conference (A) are sending relief voluntarily. sana
