Srinagar: Amarnath Yatra was suspended from twin routes of Pahalgam and Baltal due to heavy rainfall, just a day after the annual yatra began, said Amarnath Shrine Board on Friday.

"The yatra has been suspended temporarily in view of the rains that lashed the twin routes early in the morning," an official of the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) told PTI.

He said the rains have rendered the tracks slippery at some places.

"The pilgrims headed for base camps at Baltal and Nunwan are requested to check the status of the yatra with the control room or helpline set up by the SASB before starting off," the official said.

Braving inclement weather, over 6,000 pilgrims on Thursday paid obeisance at Amarnath amid tight security.
