The officials went on to say: “This is the smallest number of pilgrims leaving Jammu for the yatra so far this year.”

“They left Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas at 3am in an escorted convoy of 19 vehicles for the Kashmir Valley.”

So far, over 2.50 lakh pilgrims have performed the yatra since it started on June 29 compared to last year’s 2.30 lakh devotees due to the tension in Kashmir due to the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani.

The yatra will conclude on August 7 on Shravan Purnima coinciding with the Raksha Bandhan festival.
