Jammu, Aug 1 (UNI) A fresh batch of pilgrims today left for the Amarnath cave from Bhagwati Nagar base camp here amid tight security, official sources said.
Official reports said that 354 pilgrims, including women, escorted by security forces left from the base camp in 10 vehicles.
However, the Amaranth land row has brought down the number of pilgrims coming from across the country to visit the holy cave shrine situated in South Kashmir. The two-month long yatra was flagged off on June 18.
