The protestors, led by Punjab Youth Congress president Vikram Chaudhary, stopped the Sada-e-Sarhad friendship bus on the Amritsar-Attari road near Chheharta area.

The bus, which moves with pilot and escort vehicles through its journey from Delhi via Haryana and Punjab to Attari, was stopped for a few minutes before police reinforcements rushed to the spot and dispersed the protestors.

The bus resumed its journey after the brief hold-up. The bus services from Delhi and Lahore have been diverted from its route in the past two days due to protests at Phagwara town, 130 km from Chandigarh.

Earlier on Wednesday, at least 200 members of the Youth Congress were detained when they were marching towards the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi to protest against the killings of five Indian soldiers.
