02 July :- For the Amarnath Yatra, 5 thousand 7 hundred 91 pilgrims left for Monday. Police said that two groups of 4 thousand 47 and 1 thousand 744 pilgrims boarded 201 vehicles and left for the valley from Bhagwati Nagar Passenger Residential.
The first group left for Pahalgam and the second Baltal base camp. Pilgrimage was temporarily stopped due to bad weather. This pilgrimage was adjourned for three days but due to improvement in the weather, it was restored on Sunday.
This 60-day pilgrimage started on 28th June and it will end on 26th August.
Please tell us that comprehensive security arrangements such as electromagnetic chip, bike, bulletproof SUVs and police bulletproof bunkers are being arranged for Amarnath Yatra this time.
More than 40 thousand armed soldiers of CRPF and state police have been deployed along with the internal trains to Jammu, Via Pahalgam and Baltal on the journey. In addition, CCTV cameras and drones are also being used quite often this time.
Terrorists can not make any kind of disturbances on the travel route, for which the army troops have been deployed. If the terrorists try to attack somewhere, then additional security forces can be sent there immediately in that direction, arrangements have also been made for this.
Looking at the deployment of large number of security forces in plain clothes on the travel route and strict security arrangements for pilgrims, terrorists are likely to target the security forces camps. In this way, all the security camps have been kept on alert.
In case of any natural calamity, National Disaster Response Moksha Force (NDRF) troops and J & K rescue and relief teams have been deployed at critical places for relief, rescue and rescue.
