Srinagar: The border town of Karnah and some other far flung areas in north Kashmir were on Tuesday cutoff from rest of the valley due to slippery road conditions following fresh snowfall.
However, three main road — Kupwara-Keran, Kupwara-Machil and Bandpora-Gurez — connecting dozens of far flung and remote areas remained through for traffic despite fresh snowfall.
“Traffic on Kupwara-Karnah road has been suspended due to slippery road conditions following about 4 inches of fresh snowfall,” an official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara, told UNI over the phone.
He said the traffic will be allowed to ply on the road after clearance of snow and improvement in weather conditions. “Traffic to other areas, including border towns of Keran, Machil and villages near the Line of Control (LoC), was plying normally so far,” he added.
An official of Police Control Room (PCR) from Bandipora told UNI that one-way traffic from Gurez, which is surrounded from Pakistan-administered-Kashmir (PaK) from three sides, to Bandipora was plying normally despite fresh light snowfall. “Razdan pass, connecting Gurez, Neeru and dozens of other areas near LoC received light snowfall,” he said.
