15,000 stranded as Amarnath Yatra remains suspended for 3rd day

Jammu, July 11 (ANI): The Amarnath Yatra remained suspended for the third consecutive day as curfew continued in most part of the Kashmir Valley following the tension after the killing of Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani on Friday. The number of deaths in Kashmir clashes rose to 21 over the weekend.

Around 15,000 pilgrims are waiting in Jammu for their turn to proceed to the Valley so that they can undertake the Yatra. No pilgrim was allowed to move towards the Valley from Jammu to perform the Amarnath Yatra as part of a host of other security measures, including the blocking of internet services and postponement of school board exams.

One of the devotees Suman said they are stuck in Jammu from past three days with a hope that they will be able to perform the yatra soon. She also said that the condition of the government buses is miserable over there.
