This comes a day after the yatra was also suspended from the Baltal route because of similar weather conditions. A flood alert has also been sounded after Jhelum river flowed above the critical 21-feet mark at Sangam in Anantnag district in Jammu & Kashmir state on Friday. Pilgrims were asked to stay in the base camps until the yatra was resumed and residents living in low lying areas were informed to stay in shelter homes.
