Elsewhere, PTI reported that high altitude areas including the famous ski resort of Gulmarg experienced fresh snowfall on Friday while steady rains lashed Srinagar, resulting in a considerable drop in temperatures.

Gulmarg recorded about three inches of snow – much to the delight of tourists who are enjoying their holiday in the famous hill resort, officials said.

They said about five inches of snow was recorded in the peripheral areas of the hill station including Kongdoori and Aferwath.

Gulmarg, which is still covered by a thick layer of snow, is attracting tourists in good numbers and the fresh snowfall is expected to further boost footfall.

Reports of moderate snowfall were also received from Z-Gali in Kupwara district, Sonamarg and Zojilla pass along Srinagar-Leh National highway in Ganderbal district, Peer Ki Gali along Mughal road in Shopian district, Amarnath cave shrine and adjoining hills in Anantnag district and upper reaches of Yousmarg in Budgam district, officials said.
