Free air service for Kashmir highway stranded

Jammu Feb 27, 2007 (Kashmir Newz Desk):

The government has announced two days free air service for stranded passengers by the closure of the Srinagar Jammu National Highway.

The highway has been closed for the last week with heavy landslides at Panthal.

The reopening of the only link to Kashmir Valley may take more days, as fresh rains have affected the repair works going on at Panthal.

Around 1500 vehicles had been stranded at many places along the highway.

A government spokesman said here the free air service was ordered by prime minister of India, to be provided through special Army airplanes to stranded passengers both from Jammu to Srinagar and vice-versa keeping in view continuous road blockage between Srinagar and Jammu.

The free special air service will be operational for Wednesday and Thursday.

All passengers stranded at Jammu have been advised to immediately contact Divisional Commissioner Jammu (Mobile No: 9419000708, Office Telephone No: 2544045, Residence Telephone No: 2466490), Deputy Commissioner Jammu (Mobile No: 9419180839, Office Telephone No: 2546223, Residence Telephone No: 2459164) and SSP Police Control Room Jammu (Mobile No: 9419180911, Office Telephone No: 2560402, 2570152, Residence Telephone No: 2460344).

The passengers stranded at Srinagar have been advised to contact Divisional Commissioner Kashmir (Mobile No. 9419000704, Office Telephone No: 2452643, Residence Telephone No: 2452581), Deputy Commissioner Srinagar (Mobile No: 9419184131, Office Telephone No: 2452182, Residence Telephone No: 2487322) and SSP Control Room Srinagar (Mobile No: 9419000903, Telephone No: 2452092, 2452138 and Residence Telephone No. 2434740).

All stranded passengers are advised to enlist their names accordingly.
