Srinagar, Nov 28: The authorities have reopened the Srinagar-Kargil road and will clear the stranded traffic on Monday.
“The snow was cleared from Zojila and subject to fair weather the stranded vehicles will be allowed to move from Kargil to Srinagar on Monday,” a communiqué issued by the police said adding the traffic from Srinagar to Kargil would be allowed on Tuesday 30.
It said the SP Kargil and SP Ganderbal had been asked to regulate traffic for these two days and no vehicles would be allowed on this road from December 1.
