Jammu: Incessant rains and landslides for two days have left many stranded on the Jammu-Srinagar highway, considered the lifeline of Jammu and Kashmir, officials said on Wednesday.

Over 500 vehicles were stranded around Ramban area, 160 km from here, said a traffic police officer.

Many passengers were also stuck on the 300-km highway.

"We are trying to clear the landslides but shooting stones and continuing slides are impeding the clearing process," a Border Roads Organisation (BRO) official said.

Besides the highway, many other mountainous roads in Jammu region are closed due to landslides - disrupting connectivity with major townships.
