AsiaHeavy snowfall parayalizes life in Indian-held Kashmir

Jammu: As a result of heavy rain and snow storm many parts of Indian-held Jammu & Kashmir remained cut-off from India. Over 100-km stretch between Patnitop and Banihal has over a dozen road blockades caused by snow, landslides and shooting stones while mountainous areas such as Kishtwar, Doda, Poonch, Rajouri, Bani and Bhaderwah were also cut-ff. Dispatch News Desk reported on Tuesday.

Hundreds of load carriers and passenger vehicles were also stranded for a third consecutive day on the Jammu-Srinagar highway.  “We are trying our best to coordinate with Border Roads Organisation to clear the road but heavy rains and snow are hampering clearance work,” DIG Police Gareeb Das said. Telecommunication links and electricity supply in Jammu region have been disrupted.

The Met Office said the weather would improve by Wednesday. There are about 200 people stranded at Jammu bus stand due to closure of the Jammu-Srinagar highway. The stranded passengers also complained about eateries and teashops over-charging.
