Authorities have placed several officials, including a tehsildar, under suspension for alleged dereliction of duty in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.
Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

They were suspended for remaining silent and not taking any action against the fellers, the official said.
He said the officials were immediately attached with DC office Shopian. (GK)
