Srinagar, July 11: About 60 per cent pilgrims who had paid obeisance at the Amarnath cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas till Wednesday evening since the commencement of the annual pilgrimage from July Ist, have travelled from Jammu to Kashmir without any security cover on their own.

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik, his advisors, and leaders of different mainstream political parties have time and again said that due to cooperation of the local people, particularly in the Kashmir valley, Amarnath yatra was being held successfully for more than a century. Even the separatists had welcomed the pilgrimage and said the yatries are guests.

However, 15732 pilgrims paid obeisance on July 8 when only 4773 yataries had arrived from Jammu on July 7 under security cover.
Despite suspension of yatra from Jammu on July 8, 9541 pilgrims had darshan at the cave shrine on July 9 when 5964 yatries left Jammu for Kashmir base camp in the morning. July 10, 9307 pilgrims have darshan at the cave shrine till last night.
