Heavy traffic jam on Sgr-Jmu highway

Heavy traffic jam was witnessed on Srinagar-Jammu National Highway in the Banihal-Jawahar Tunnel sector from Friday evening even as authorities did not allow fresh Kashmir-bound traffic.

Breakdown of several heavy vehicles at various places from Ramsu to Banihal contributed to the traffic jam.

Drivers said that they moved towards Kashmir only after a go-ahead from Traffic Police but have been stuck in traffic jam.
