Authorities on Saturday claimed to have rescued over 150 passengers from the historic Mughal road following its closure due to snowfall.

SSP Poonch Rajiv Pandey told that more than 150 persons were rescued which were stranded on the road from past three days due to snowfall.

He said that eight passenger vehicles with around thirty passengers were rescued in the intervening night of November 1 and 2 while around sixty truckers were rescued yesterday noon. 67 truckers were rescued last night.

A gunman killed two people and injured several others at a yoga studio in Florida’s state capital Tallahassee Friday before apparently taking his own life, the local police chief said.

“About 5:47 pm the Tallahassee Police Department responded in reference to a shooting,” police chief Michael DeLeo said at a press conference.

“Upon arriving on scene, the officers found multiple victims suffering from gunshot wounds.” First responders transported five people to a nearby hospital, with two later succumbing to their wounds, DeLeo said.

One of the victims was pistol-whipped, police said.

“There are indications that several people inside fought back and tried to not only save themselves but other people, which is a testament to their courage,” DeLeo said.

The shooting appeared to be the act of a single person, with no further threat to the community perceived at this time, according to the police chief.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is currently running for governor of Florida and cut short a campaign event to return to the city, tweeted: “I’m deeply appreciative of law enforcement’s quick response to the shooting at the yoga facility in Tallahassee today.”

“No act of gun violence is acceptable. I’m in close communication with law enforcement officials and will be returning to Tallahassee tonight.
