Srinagar, Feb 4: Traffic to dozens of far-flung and remote villages, including border towns of Karnah, Machil and Tanghdar, remained suspended for the second successive day on Thursday in north Kashmir due to slippery road conditions following accumulation of snow.
However, one-way traffic was through to the border town of Keran despite intermittent snowfall since Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, traffic to border towns of Gurez in Bandipora remained suspended since January 1 due to accumulation of several feet of snow.
“Dozens of far-flung and remote villages, including Kernah, Machil and Tanghdar, remained cutoff due to slippery road conditions following accumulation of several inches of snow,” an official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara, told UNI over the phone.
He said Sadhna top, Z gali and Phirkiyan pass received several inches of fresh snowfall since Wednesday morning. “But, traffic was plying on Kupwara-Keran road,” he added.
An official of Police Control Room (PCR) from Bandipora told UNI that Gurez, which is surrounded from Pakistan-occupied- Kashmir (PoK) from three sides, remained closed for traffic since January 1. “Razdan pass, connecting Gurez, Neeru and dozens of other areas near LoC with district headquarters Bandipora, which is already covered over several feet of snow, received fresh snowfall since Wednesday morning,” he said.
