Rajouri, May 24: Authorities have restored Mughal road – connecting Poonch and Shopian districts of south Kashmir – after halting the vehicular traffic movement on Sunday evening following a landslide along the thoroughfare at Mansar Morh Peer Ki Gali.

An official said that the road has been cleared of the debris at affected spot and the stranded fruit-laden trucks allowed to ply along the road.

It is pertinent to mention here that the thoroughfare was exclusively thrown open to fruit-laden trucks and movement of Gujjar-Bakerwals. However on frequent appeals from public, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha asked the administration to extend the relaxations for patients referred from Poonch and Rajouri districts to Srinagar hospitals. gns
