The Kashmir valley was cut off from the rest of the world today as the Srinagar-Jammu highway was closed for traffic due to snowfall. Flight operation from the Srinagar airport was also affected.
 
Flight services to and fro from the Srinagar International Airport were hit due to poor visibility caused by heavy snowfall, airport authorities said.
 
"The Srinagar-Jammu highway has been closed due to accumulation of snow at the Jawahar Tunnel, turning the road slippery and unsafe for traffic," Traffic police officials said.
 
There were also incidents of shooting stones near Panthal, leading to the highway's closure, they said.
