Landslides stall Amarnath pilgrims progress

Jammu: The Jammu-Srinagar national highway on Friday was blocked due to landslides stalling the progress of the Amarnath pilgrims. No ‘yatri’ was allowed to move towards the Kashmir Valley from here, an official said.

The 40-day long Amarnath Yatra started on Thursday

The landslides were triggered by incessant rains throughout the night.

“No pilgrim movement has been allowed today (Friday) towards the Valley from the Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas here. The situation will be reviewed,” the official said.

The 40-day long Amarnath Yatra started on Thursday.
