The Border Roads Organisation pressed into service its personnel and machinery to clear the snow from the highway. However, the Himachal transport corporation’s Keylong depot suspended its Delhi-Leh bus service.

The bus service on the Kullu-Kaza route was also suspended due to fresh snow at Kunzum pass. The Manali-Keylong road also remained blocked for hours as a huge boulder rolled down from the hillside on the road at Nehru Kund near Manali. — TNS
