STATE TIMES NEWS Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir administration is setting up dedicated terminals and counters at Lakhanpur to ensure registration and medical sampling of all pilgrims on their arrival in the Union Territory for the upcoming annual Amarnath Yatra, an official spokesman said on Monday. The decision was taken during a discussion on the entry mechanism of intending pilgrims at Lakhanpur along the Jammu-Pathankot highway between Jammu Divisional Commissioner Sanjeev Verma and the Kathua district administration, the spokesman said. He said Verma along with Inspector General of Police, Jammu, Mukesh Singh visited Lakhanpur to oversee the arrangements for the yatra to the 3,880 -meter-high holy cave shrine of Amarnath in south Kashmir Himalayas later this month. This year, the annual yatra is being held in a restricted manner in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The spokesman said the divisional commissioner also called for making adequate arrangements for boarding and lodging facilities of pilgrims in case the yatra is halted due to any emergency. While reviewing security arrangements, Verma directed police to deploy adequate number of personnel at Lakhanpur and at all important yatra points.
