Karnah road reopens, Machil, Keran and Gurez still cut off

Srinagar, Feb 15 (UNI) Dozens of villages, including near the Line of Control (LoC), in north Kashmir district of Kupwara and Bandipora, remained cut off with their respective tehsil and district headquarters due to accumulation of several feet of snow and slippery road conditions.
The road to Karnah from district headquarters Kupwara reopened on Saturday after remaining closed for several weeks due to snow. However, the border towns of Machil, Keran and Gurez remained cut off due to slippery road conditions and accumulation of snow.
Traffic was on Saturday resumed on Kupwara-Karnah road after remaining suspended for several weeks due to snowfall, an official of Police Control Room (PCR), Kupwara told UNI over phone this morning. He said traffic was resumed after the snow clearance operation on the road was completed on Friday. The sky is cloudy but weather was still dry, he said.
However, he said the Kupwara-Keran and Kupwara-Machil roads remained closed. The snow clearance operation was going on from both sides, he said. Due to closure of these roads, dozens of other villages near the LoC also remained cut off from tehsil and district headquarters.
Meanwhile, the road from Bandipora to Gurez, a border town surrounded by Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) from three sides, also remained closed due to accumulation of several feet of snow at Razdan pass. Due to closure of this road, over 20 border areas, including Neeru, also remained cut off from district headquarter Bandipora.

19 Feb 2020 | 6:42 PM

Bhopal, Feb 19 (UNI) Law-enforcement authorities of the future will be equipped with technology instead of weapons, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred on Wednesday while emphasising that the force shall have to familiarise itself with the latest techs and learn to adopt the same.
“My dispensation will extend all possible support to personnel in this direction. I hope that in future the Madhya Pradesh Police shall become so skilful vis-a-vis utilising emerging applied science that it would be an ideal for other states. Economic growth also brings with it monetary transgressions. Those in khaki need to recognise the nature and tendency of such offences. Harmony among limbs of governance is imperative for quality results,” he was officially quoted as saying while addressing the Indian Police Service Officers’ Conclave 2020 at the imposing Minto Hall here.
