Amarnath Yatra resumes in Kashmir after three days 

Jammu, July 11 (IANS) The Amarnath Yatra which was suspended for three days resumed on Monday afternoon with pilgrims leaving the Jammu city for Kashmir Valley.

“Amarnath bound yatris left for the valley in 40 buses around 4.20 p.m. from Bhagawati Nagar Yatri Niwas in Jammu city,” a senior police official told IANS.

“The convoy of the yatris is protected by the security forces who are escorting the pilgrims to the valley,” he said.

Due to the prevailing law and order situation in Kashmir the yatra was suspended for the last three days as no pilgrim was allowed to proceed towards the valley during this period.

Meanwhile, authorities are arranging a special train which will leave Jammu around 8 p.m. on Monday to carry those pilgrims back home who reached the city in 200 buses from the valley after performing the yatra.
