45 year old Kawad pilgrim dies due to heart failure
Meanwhile, district authorities imposed a traffic diversion plan for the smooth conduct of the Kawad Yatra.
Vimla Devi, 45, who was carrying holy water from the Ganga river, was on her way to Pura Mahadev when she collapsed last evening, they said.
She was rushed to a hospital where she was declared dead, they added.
District Magistrate Rajive Sharma told reporters today that traffic from Delhi to Dehradun, Rishikesh, and Haridwar was shifted to alternative routes from the highway.
The pilgrimage started on July 28 and would be concluded on August 9.
