Pilgrimage crosses one lakh on 12th day of Yatra
SRINAGAR, Jul 9: On the 12th day of the ongoing Yatra, 9,606 pilgrims paid obeisance at holy cave and till date, 1,04,018 pilgrims had performed Darshan at the cave.

This was told to governor N N Vohra during a review meeting here.

CEO of SASB further informed that during the initial 11 days since the start of the Yatra, the movement of pilgrims from Jammu to Kashmir Valley was suspended on three occasions due to rains and slippery track conditions on both the Yatra routes and landslides and shooting stones between Railpathri and Brarimarg which resulted in accumulation of a large number of Yatris at Baltal and Nunwan Base Camps. On one occasion, the movement of Yatris was stopped from Jammu to the Base Camp of Baltal and Nunwan because of security concerns.

Governor was further informed that keeping in view the safety of the Yatris, Amarnathji Yatra remained totally suspended on three occasions from both Baltal as well as Pahalgam routes and remained suspended twice from Baltal route on because of landslides, slippery tracks and shooting stones caused by incessant rainfall.
