Jammu and Kashmir received fresh snowfall and rains since last night. Plains in Srinagar and other parts also received season’s first snowfall.
Jammu-Srinagar highway that connects Kashmir Valley with rest of India was blocked due to snow accumulation at Jawahar Tunnel, landslides, and shooting stones at several places along the route.
Unnamed officials told a local news agency, Global News Service, that the Srinagar-Leh and Mughal road, connecting Shopian with Poonch district, also remained closed. (GNS)
