In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a major landslide, today, shut the historic Mughal road. The Mughal road connects Shopian district in the Kashmir Valley with Poonch and Rajouri districts of Jammu region. Officials said that the landslide occurred near Poshana, resulting in the closure of the road. A traffic official told media men that the highway has been blocked at Cafeteria, Mehad and Ramban and the Mughal Road and SSG Road are through for vehicular movement.
The official said men and machinery have been pressed into service to restore the traffic. Deputy Superintendent of Traffic Police Parul Bhardawaj said, “The road was blocked due to rain that lashed the area this morning, resulting in shooting stones, mudslides at Mehar-Cafeteria Morh and Ramban stretch.”—KMS
