IIOJK highway closed for traffic due to landslide in Ramban


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu-Srinagar highway was closed for traffic on Monday due to a landslide in Ramban district.

The 270-kilometre highway was blocked by mudslides and shooting stones between Chanderkote and Banihal area of the district, leaving a few hundred vehicles stranded on the arterial road, traffic police officials said. As a result, 300 vehicles are stranded at different points of the highway, the officials said.

The highway is the lifeline of the Kashmir valley and the main road link connecting Kashmir with the rest of the world.—KMS
