Srinagar, Jan 02: Authorities on Wednesday suspended traffic movement on the road connecting Karnah to Kupwara following fresh snowfall.

An official said that It is still snowing at Sadhna pass and the traffic movement has been suspended on the road as a precautionary measure.


As per the official record, 1 ft of snow was recorded at Sadhna top while plain areas of the district have received around four inches.

“Due to the fresh snowfall in the area, the Karnah- Kupawara road has been closed for precautionary measures, If there will be an improvement in the weather then hopefully clearance will be started, official added.

However, the snowfall led to slippery conditions on the roads in Kupwara district causing a slowdown in traffic movement.
