Jammu kashmir traffic police

Traffic police men are deployed on ground zero to normally regulate traffic and book violators.

Ironically, the manner in which the traffic police cops were catching hold of traffic violators  they added to the miseries of the motorists driving on the …

Large scale conversion of residential houses in to commercial establishments and construction of basement in commercial establishments without seeking approval of the JK housing board is also going on rampantly in Channi-Himmat causing lot of hardships to common residents …

Resting points erected in the area remain out of bound for visitors as they ar emostly occupied by the stray animals. Also Read: Government is taking up several steps …
