INDIA, July 4, 2018 (Economic Times): The Amarnath Yatra in south Kashmir Himalayas was suspended today from both Pahalgam and Baltal routes due to landslides even as the death toll during this year's yatra rose to 11, an official spokesperson said. He said, however, limited helicopter services functioned from both the routes. "On the 7th day of the ongoing Shri Amarnathji Yatra, 5,919 yatris paid obeisance at the holy cave. Till date, 60,752 yatris had darshan of the Shivling at the holy Cave," the spokesperson said. Meanwhile, the death toll during this year's yatra reached 11 today as a woman pilgrim died after getting hit by a falling rock at Brarimarg along the Baltal route, a police official said. The pilgrimage began on June 28 and is scheduled to conclude on August 26, coinciding with Raksha Bandhan.
