According to the reports, it may take 3 days to restore the highway. The passengers are being evacuated from some of the smaller vehicles but the people who have come in heavy vehicles are unable to leave. Buses and other vehicles passing through the area have been stopped. According to the sources, more than 20 buses and 15 minibusses with pilgrims were stopped.
