Night traffic resumes on Jammu-Srinagar highway

Night traffic resumed on the Jammu-Srinagar highway after remaining closed due to protests in Kashmir, officials said on Thursday.
Randeep Kumar, senior superintendent of police (SSP) Ramban told reporters that the traffic on the Jammu-Srinagar highway was restored and vehicular traffic was moving smoothly.

For the last 28 days, authorities allowed traffic on the strategic highway only during the night.

Since the Valley has been reeling under officially imposed curfew and the protest shutdown called by the separatists since July 9, various retail outlets are already running thin with supplies as the highway is the only route for various essentials to reach Kashmir.
