Amarnath Yatra remains suspended

Jammu, July 10 (IANS) The Amarnath Yatra remained suspended for the second day on Sunday as no pilgrim was allowed to move from Jammu to Kashmir Valley, officials said.

“No yatri will be allowed to move from Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas in Jammu to the Kashmir Valley on Sunday due to the prevailing law and order situation there,” a senior police officer said here.

“Although the passage of yatris from Jammu to the valley was disallowed due to security reasons, those who had already reached the yatra base camps of Baltal and Nunwan (Pahalgam), continued the yatra on Saturday,” the officer added.

Meanwhile, authorities on Sunday suspended mobile internet services in the entire Jammu region to check spread of rumours following heightened tensions in the Kashmir Valley.

“There is complete peace in the entire Jammu region. Mobile internet services have been suspended as a precautionary measure,” the police officer said.

“Internet services are, however, functioning on fixed broadband lines,” he said.

Mobile Internet services were suspended in the Kashmir Valley on Saturday after the death of top Hizbul commander Burhan Wani in a gunfight with the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
