According to officials, traffic on Pantha Chowk-Nowgam road was suspended till the IED was diffused for the safety of the people.

Following the recent militant attack police and other security agencies have also decided to carry out instant crackdowns like the one at Hari Singh High Street in Srinagar on Monday.
