Srinagar, November 28, 2020 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, traffic on Srinagar-Leh highway remained suspended on the sixth consecutive day today due to slides at several places along the road. The highway was closed on Monday after fresh snowfall on the Zojila pass and Drass areas. An official said that though the snow clearance on the highway was completed on Thursday, however some fresh snow slides occurred at few places between zero point Zojila and India gate “resulting in further closure of the road”.
