Srinagar- Traffic on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway was suspended Wednesday after heavy rains triggered shooting of stones at a few places in Ramban district, officials said.

An official of the traffic department said the shooting stones from the hillocks overlooking the highway at a couple of places between Charkote and Banihal forced suspension of traffic.

He said the road clearance agencies are ready with their men and machines to make the road traffic worthy once the shooting of stones stops.

Earlier, a driver was killed and two others injured when a truck and an oil tanker were hit by rolling boulders at Magarkot in the early hours of the day.

In view of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the traffic department has issued a detailed advisory to ensure hassle-free vehicular movement on the highway and avoid any unnecessary inconvenience to the people.

The department has declared the yatra route from Batti-Matra-forest Check post road as a“no traffic zone” and also advised people of Ramban town and adjoining areas not to park any vehicle on the road during the foot march.

The traffic department also said no vehicle will be allowed from Qazigund (Kashmir) towards Ramban till the yatra reaches its camping site at Lamber in Banihal, where it will stay for the night before entering Kashmir on January 27.

The advisory also requested the Army and paramilitary forces to avoid vehicular movement during the yatra.
