SRINAGAR: Administration has asked visitors to vacate picturesque Pahalgam in two hours or they would face the action.
The development comes after the administration decided to re-impose restrictions in view of a surge in COVID-19 cases.
“We have asked all visitors to vacate Pahalgam in two hours as restrictions will be enforced. No one will be allowed to go Pahalgam,” SDM Pahalgam Faheem told news agency KINS.
Sources said officials were making announcements through loudspeakers asking visitors to vacate Pahalgam or they will face action.
Authorities had closed tourist places in Kashmir to contain the spread of coronavirus.
However, recently the government opened public parks and gardens. Since then hundreds of people have been visiting tourist spots.
