Sopore : The tumors of petrol and diesel shortage has led to panic buying in North Kashmir’s Sopore town here on Wednesday.
Reports reaching Kashmir Despatch said that people were seen panic buying, and there are rumors that fuel station will remain closed due to shortage of petrol and diesel.
Long queues were witnessed since Wednesday morning at several fuel stations in Sopore town.
