SRINAGAR: The traffic in south Srinagar city came to a grinding halt today due to security arrangements for Home Minister Rajnath Singh's visit to Jammu and Kashmir.

The roads leading to Sher-e-Kashmir Indoor Complex at Wazir Bagh here have been sealed as the home minister is scheduled to attend the Jammu and Kashmir Sports Conclave 2018 organised by the state sports council.

The vehicles are being checked by security forces at Rambagh intersection before being allowed to pass which has caused a massive traffic jam.

The traffic jam spread to areas like Gojgi Bagh, Bund side, Jawahar Nagar, Batamaloo, Rambagh and Lasjan, eye witnesses said.

They said traffic cops are trying to ease the traffic, but have not been successful so far.

This is the peak hour for traffic in the city because of the office hours as well as schools which open at 9 am.
