Ganderbal, July 12: Amarnath Yatra, which remained suspended for four days after 16 people were killed in a flash flood near the holy cave last week, resumed on Tuesday as fresh batch of pilgrims left for holy cave from Baltal base camp, officials said here.
An official said that a fresh batch of pilgrims was allowed from Baltal base camp today morning.
Yesterday, about 3,000 pilgrims were allowed to move towards Chandanwari from the Pahalgam base camp. The Yatra from this side was stopped for the three two days after cloudburst incident near the Amarnath holy cave.
