Advertising There were no casualties in the incident that occurred near the Jawahar Tunnel — the gateway to the Kashmir valley — in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district around 10.30 am. “It has not been established whether it was a (terror) attack or not. It has also not been established why the vehicle caught fire,” Governor Satya Pal Malik told reporters in Jammu. “No explosive of sorts, but nothing can be said (at the moment).”
