Continuous rainfall since Thursday evening along with fresh snowfall on higher reaches led to a sharp decline in the temperature in Rajouri and Poonch districts and normal life was affected badly.

According to reports, continuous rainfall was witnessed since yesterday evening in both Rajouri and Poonch. "Power supply in both the districts was also affected and unscheduled power curtailment was witnessed throughout the day,” locals said.

Meanwhile, Kandi and Budhal in Rajouri and Mandi, Loran and Saujiyan in Poonch recorded fresh snowfall. In some areas on higher reaches, snow up-to half-a-feet got accumulated and the sharp decline in temperature forced the people to wear woolen clothes.

"Snowfall, that too in ending April, is a bit surprise and has affected normal life. People were already in the summer spirit and suddenly the temperature plunged,” said Mohammed Faizaan, a local.
