Srinagar: Vehicles left stranded on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway that was closed for traffic due to shooting stones triggered by rains at Ramban, which is 150 kilometres from Jammu, on Nov 16, 2020. During the last two days the higher reaches of Jammu and Kashmir received snowfall while the plains received rainfall bringing down the temperature substantially. The Jammu Srinagar highway is the life line for Kashmir Valley and an important surface link connecting Kashmir with the rest of the country.
