An unattended bag outside the headquarters of Army's 15 Corps led to a bomb scare, resulting in a massive traffic jam on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway today.

A bag was found unattended near the main gate of Corps headquarters this morning by the army personnel posted on duty there, official sources said.

They said a bomb disposal squad was called in to check the bag, which was later found to be containing clothes. The incident had led to a security alarm as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is arriving on a two-day visit to the state tomorrow.

While the bomb disposal squad was on job, the traffic authorities diverted all the traffic through By Pass road, resulting in massive traffic jams en route. Normal traffic movement was restored in the area half an hour later.
