Officials said that the Sonamarg-Zojila road had to be closed due to the fresh snowfall in the upper reaches of Zojila in Ganderbal district, Central .

“Due to fresh snowfall & slippery road conditions at Zojilla Pass of NH-1D traffic has been stopped at Minamarg & Sonamarg till improves,” Kargil Police said in a post on X earlier in the day.
