    A police official said the Kali Mata Track has been damaged due to landslides at multiple places, which has forced suspension of the yatra from Baltal route.

    "Restoration work is going on but a slight drizzle is hampering restoration work," the official said.

    An official of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) said the yatra was going on through the Pahalgam route.

    The annual yatra to the 3880-metre high cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas began yesterday and will conclude on 26 August to coincide with the festival of Raksha Bandhan.
