Poonch: The traffic on historic Mughal road, connecting twin districts of Shopian and Poonch with south Kashmir’s Shopian district, was restored on Thursday afternoon, hours after landslides triggered by rains blocked the thoroughfare.

Reports said that the road was blocked following heavy landslides which occurred at Poshana leading to the closure of the road.

“Concerned authorities were informed about it to clear the road. Men and machinery were pressed into service and the traffic was restored,” he said. The Mughal road is connecting Poonch and Rajouri districts with Shopian of south Kashmir.
