The floods, which are stated to be the worst in 109 years after rains pummelled the state on September 2, have left nearly 200 dead.

IAF, Army and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are carrying out non-stop rescue and relief operations.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has directed officials to provide total support to the Jammu and Kashmir government to enable it ramp-up rescue and relief operations following massive floods in the state and he stressed on the need to quickly reach essential commodities to the affected people.

Here are the pictorial illustrations which show how Jammu & Kashmir, a paradise on Earth, has turned into hell:
