Bhaderwah valley was cut off from the rest of the state due to a major landslide in Chakrana on Friday, blocking the Doda-Bhaderwah road and leaving hundreds of vehicles stranded.

The landslide was triggered after rains in the area, around 18 kms from the district headquarter of Doda, at about 1 PM, officials said.

Over 200 vehicles were stranded on both sides of the road due to the incident.

District authorities have started clearing the blocked stretch, they said.
