Amarnath Yatra Suspended once Again after Resumption Today

Guwahati: The Amarnath Yatra, which had begun early on Monday morning, has been put on hold once more after significant rainfall close to the sacred cave.

A new group of Amarnath pilgrims departed from the Jammu base camp for the Kashmir valley today at 5 am.

The pilgrims prayed for the yatra’s prosperity and rejoiced that it had resumed.

It may be mentioned that the yatra resumed this morning after being temporarily halted on Friday owing to a cloudburst at the Amarnath cave temple, which left 16 people dead and at least three dozen missing.

An additional 34 injured pilgrims were evacuated by IAF Mi-17 V5 and Cheetal helicopters today. IAF helicopters also airlifted 20 NDRF personnel along with six canines to search for missing persons stuck under debris.
