Srinagar: No civilian traffic was allowed on the Kashmir highway on Wednesday due to ban imposed by the authorities to allow movement of security forces convoy.
However, the authorities have announced to lift the ban on civilian traffic movement from next week though ban will continue on Sunday on the highway.
The authorities imposed ban on the highway between Baramulla in north Kashmir to Udhampur in Jammu twice in a week on Sunday and Wednesday after 44 CRPF personnel were killed in a fidayeen attack in February this year.
A traffic police official said that today was security force convoy day. No movement of any kind of public vehicle will be allowed on the highway from Udhampur towards Srinagar and vice versa, he said.
