Dozens of villages remain cut off as Phirkiyan, Z-Gali still closed

Srinagar, Mar 19 (UNI) Dozens of far-flung and remote villages, including those near the Line of Control (LoC), remained cut off with their respective district and tehsil headquarters on Monday in north Kashmir as Phirkiyan and Z-Gali continue to remain closed for the past about a week due to accumulation of snow and threat of avalanches.
However, the Sadhna pass, connecting border areas with Kupwara reopened for traffic after remaining closed for about a week due to fresh snowfall.
Phirkiyan and Z-Gali remained closed for any traffic movement following to accumulation of fresh snowfall due to which road has become very slippery, an official of Police Control Room (PCR) told UNI over phone from Kupwara on Monday.
He said due to closure of these passes, dozens of village, including those near LoC, remained cut off with their district headquarters. However, he said the snow clearance operation has already been taken up following improvement in the weather. Traffic will be resumed on both the passes after receiving green signal from the officials, he said. A driver of BRO lost his life when a snow clearance machine came under an avalanche at Phirkiyan. There is a avalanche warning in Z-Gali and Phirkiyan today.
'We resumed traffic on Sadhna pass yesterday after the accumulated snow has been cleared,' he said. In the first week of January 11 people, including an official of Border Roads Organisation (BRO) were killed after they were swept away by a snow avalanche at Sadhan pass.
The Razdan pass, connecting Bandipora with border town of Gurez, Neeru and other far-flung and remote villages, mostly near LoC surrounded by Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) from three sides, remained closed since December last year due to accumulation of snow and slippery road conditions.
