Srinagar, Jan 16 (ANI): The Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, the lone road link between Kashmir and rest of the country remained shut for traffic for the second consecutive day today due to heavy snowfall and landslides in the area.

The blockage was caused due to heavy snow at the Jawahar Tunnel and Patnitop while landslides hit the Banihal and Jawahar Tunnel area where the roads are extremely slippery and dangerous.

Over 3500 vehicles are stuck on the highway even as the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) is trying to clear the snow off it. (ANI)
