Srikhand Mahadev Yatra suspended
Four pilgrims including Padma Devi from Maharashtra died due to breathlessness and blood pressure and the yatra has been suspended due to continued bad weather and rains that increased the risk. The deaths took place between Parbati Bagicha and Srikhand in the last leg of the yatra at an altitude of over 16,000 feet. The search parties have located the bodies of all the victims, which are being brought to the roadhead at Nirmand. The other victims were identified as Asha Devi of village Keo in Rampur, Yudhister from Shahdhar in Rampur and Saurabh Kapoor, Devnagar in Shimla.
