Hostile weather and continuous rains coupled with flash floods since last 52 hours in most parts of Chenab valley forced the district administration to close all the educational institutions on Friday.

"On the instructions of DC Doda, I have ordered the closure of all the educational institutions up to 12th standard including private schools for the day," said Chief Education Officer Doda Mohd Sharief

"The decision was taken to ensure safety of students, as there is warning related to adverse weather with indication of heavy rainfall which may lead to landslides and shooting stones. Sporadic cloudbursts are also not ruled out," he said.
