Sena demands adequate security for Amarnath Yatra

Jammu: Shiv Sena on Saturday demanded elaborate security arrangements for the annual Amarnath Yatra commencing from July 2 in Jammu and Kashmir, citing incidents of militancy and “anti-national” activities in the state.
“We demand full and elaborate security to the annual Amarnath Yatra in the wake of anti-national activities and militancy-related incidents in Kashmir,” Shiv Sena state unit president Dimpy Kohli said.
Kohli claimed “chaotic conditions” are prevailing in the state, pointing to incidents of unfurling of Pakistan and ISIS flags in the valley, which, he said, are creating a “fear psychosis” among people across the country.
He alleged that the Jammu and Kashmir Amarnath Shrine Board and state government were working under pressure from separatists and Islamic fundamentalist organisations like ISIS.
