Flash floods triggered by a cloudburst claimed six lives and wounded 11 others in Thathri town of Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday.

Four of a family were among those killed in the cloudburst that damaged six houses, two shops and a school.

Eleven people were rescued from the debris.

The cloudburst inundated vast areas along the Batote-Kishtwar National Highway and washing away half a dozen houses.

The Batote-Doda-Kishtwar National Highway (NH1B) was closed due to huge boulders at Thathri market triggered by the cloudburst. Water supply pipes and power supply remained snapped in the area.
