Amarnath yatra suspended for second consecutive day from Jammu

Jammu The ongoing pilgrimage to the cave shrine of Amarnath in south Kashmir Himalayas remained suspended for the second consecutive day today from Jammu following bad weather conditions.

"Amarnath yatra has been suspended for second day today due to bad weather conditions," a police officer said.

No fresh batch was allowed to move to Amarnath cave shrine this morning, he said.

The pilgrimage was earlier resumed on August 13 after it remained suspended for three days in the wake of communal clashes and curfew in areas of Jammu region.

The pilgrimage was also suspended due to bad weather conditions from Kashmir-based twin base camps of Pahalgam and Baltal on Wednesday.
