ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â“Dozens of people have been injured in these house collapse incidents, but luckily no death has been reported from anywhere so far,ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â” a senior police officer said here.
Due to heavy snowfall in the valley, many houses collapsed in Srinagar, Anantnag, Shopian, Kulgam and Ganderbal districts.
Reports reaching here from the Kupwara border district said seven troopers were trapped as heavy snowfall buried their bunker on the Line of Control (LOC) in the Nagam sector.
Efforts are on to rescue the trapped troopers, sources said.
