Over 100 activists of Punjab Shiv Sena were detained on Friday while trying to enter Jammu and Kashmir to submit a memorandum to governor NN Vohra in connection with security to Amarnath Yatra pilgrims.

“We have detained over 100 activists of Shiv Sena from Punjab who wanted to enter the state and proceed towards Kashmir,” additional SP Kathua Khalil Poswal said.

The activists tried to enter the state through Lakhanpur check point.

“The Amarnath Yatra is being hampered by Pakistan- sponsored terrorists. We wanted to meet the governor to submit him a memorandum to provide tight security to the Amarnath Yatra so that it goes on without any hurdle,” president of the Punjab wing of Shiv Sena Yograj Sharma said.
