SRINAGAR: Mughal road, connecting Kashmir Valley’s Shopian district with twin districts of Rajouri and Poonch, was closed due to fresh snowfall on Thursday, officials said.

They said that there was fresh snowfall in ‘Pir Ki Gali’ and other adjoining areas, leading to the closure of the thoroughfare.

DySP PC Surankote Hamid Ali Bandey confirmed to news agency GNS about the closure of the road.

Earlier this year, the road, considered as alternative to Jammu-Srinagar Highway, was closed on two occasions due to snowfall, particularly in ‘Pir KiGali’ and its adjoining areas.
