Most parts of the Kashmir Valley, including Srinagar, today received fresh snowfall, leading to closure of the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway.


The snowfall began late last evening and by this morning, the entire Valley had turned white which led to closure of the 294-km Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, the only road link between Kashmir and rest of the country.

"Efforts are being made by chief engineer, Project Beacon, to clear the snow and re-open the road, if weather improves," coordinator of Natural Disaster Management Cell Aamir said.
