Srinagar: The twin border roads of Machil and Keran connecting the remote areas to northern Kashmir’s Kypwara district were on Tuesday closed for vehicular traffic.

Officials said the decision was taken as a precautionary measure due to slippery road conditions after heavy snowfall.

They said that the road connecting Karnah area with the district was, however, open for traffic. “There hasn’t been snowfall on the road yet,” they said. “It has been raining at Sadhna top since today morning.”
