Jammu: No pilgrim on Thursday was allowed to move towards the Kashmir Valley from Jammu as the Amarnath Yatra remained suspended due to inclement weather.

According to the police no pilgrim has departed the Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas for the Cave Shrine today.

"There was, however, limited helicopter services for the 'yatris' from the two base camps -- Baltal and Pahalgam -- to the holy cave on Wednesday," an official said.

So far, 60,752 pilgrims have performed the Yatra ever since it started on June 28.

Three pilgrims were killed and four others injured by a landslide that hit the Brarimarg-Railpathri stretch of the trek from Baltal to the Cave Shrine on July 3. (IANS)
