Fresh snowfall shuts Srinagar-Leh highway

Fresh snowfall on the Zojila Pass on Tuesday forced the closure of the Srinagar-Leh highway. Authorities said the Srinagar-Jammu highway was still open for traffic.

Similarly, snowfall has closed the Mughal road connecting the Kashmir Valley with Poonch district in Jammu region. But traffic on the Srinagar-Jammu highway was normal, authorities said.

Incessant rains in the plains and fresh snowfall in the higher reaches during the last 24 hours has brought relief for the locals after a long dry winter season.

Spring rains are expected to augment the water resources of the Valley and also delay the melting down of the perennial snow reservoirs in the mountains.
