Jammu-Srinagar National Highway remained blocked for several hours on Wednesday due to landslides in Panthal area of Ramban district.

"Landslides triggered by heavy rains at Panthal in Ramban district around 0500 hours today blocked the 300-km long National Highway, suspending vehicular traffic for brief period," police said.

The Border Roads Organisation (BRO) later cleared the landslide around 0830 hours and the traffic was restored on the highway, they said.
