Heavy snowfall in Jammu and Kashmir blocked the arterial Mughal Road, disrupting traffic movement and leaving commuters stranded. Mughal Road is the shortest route from Rajouri and Poonch districts to the Kashmir valley. It is also an important route for the trade and commerce activities in the state. Kashmir has been receiving unseasonal snowfall since early this week. With the road closed, serpentine queues of vehicles were seen on the road. Snow clearing operations have been initiated.
