Amarnath yatra remains suspended for 2nd day from Jammu
As a security measure, the yatra has been suspended for the second day today, police said.
The Amarnath yatra remained suspended for the second consecutive day today from here as a precautionary measure in view of the separatist-sponsored strike in the valley against the legal challenge in the Supreme Court on the validity of Article 35A.
Various religious and social organisations have given the two-day strike to safeguard the constitutional provision.
The Supreme Court today adjourned hearing on a batch of pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Article 35-A, which gives special rights and privileges to the people of Jammu and Kashmir, saying one of the three judges on the bench was not present.
On the 39th day of the ongoing Amarnathji yatra yesterday, 1,529 yatris paid obeisance at the holy cave shrine, and till date 2,72,815 pilgrims have had the darshan of the shivling, an official spokesman said.
