Amarnath yatra was suspended from Jammu for the third consecutive day on Thursday due to rain and fresh snowfall in South Kashmir Himalayas.

No fresh batch was allowed to proceed from the base camp at Bhagwati Nagar in Jammu or from Baltal to the cave shrine this morning, official sources said.

Since the yatra started on Monday, only one batch of 900 devotees has left from the base camp at Jammu for onward
journey to Baltal.

The other route from Pahalgam has not yet been fully cleared of snow and government will take a decision on June 22
about throwing it open for pilgrims.
