Jammu-Srinagar highway closed due to landslides

Srinagar, May 12, 2020 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu-Srinagar highway remained closed for heavy traffic due to intermittent shooting of stones from a hillock overlooking the arterial road in Ramban district, officials said. The 270-km highway is the only all-weather road connecting Kashmir with the rest of the world. The sliding of rocks from a hilltop started at Cafeteria Morh near Ramban town on Monday, forcing the authorities to halt trucks carrying essential commodities to the valley, the officials said.
