Amarnath Yatra suspended due to bad weather


Amarnath yatra was again suspended due to bad weather in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.

An official said that no pilgrim vehicle will be allowed to move towards the valley today due to bad weather.

“The yatra has been temporarily suspended because of bad weather and slippery road conditions. The yatra will resume only after the weather improves and the latest weather forecast from the meteorological department,” he said.

Officials said since it started on July 1 this year, 3,17,726 pilgrims had darshan at the cave shrine during the last 27 days.

So far, 26 pilgrims have died during the yatra. In addition to this, two volunteers and two security men also lost their lives.

The 45-day long annual Amarnath Yatra which started on July 1 has been going on smoothly and will conclude on August 15, coinciding with the Shravan Purnima festival.
