Jammu, May 25, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, a massive landslide hit the Jammu-Srinagar Highway in Ramban district in the wee hours today, leading to suspension of traffic on the only road linking Kashmir with rest of the world. An official of the traffic department said that a heavy landslide hit the highway at Battery Chashma early morning. He said the landslide was triggered by rainfall in the area during past two days.

Thousands of vehicles, which left for Srinagar from Jammu this morning, remain stranded on the highway following the closure of the road. “No vehicle will be allowed either from Banihal or Udhampur side,” said an official. Traffic was scheduled to move one way from Jammu to Srinagar today.
