Yatri from Rajasthan dies on way to Amarnath cave

Srinagar: A 65-year-old yatri from Rajasthan died due to cardiac arrest on way to the Amarnath cave in south Kashmir Himalayas, a yatra official said.
Somnath, a resident of Rajasthan, suffered a cardiac arrest at Brarimarg on shortest Baltal-cave track, he said.
Somnath was immediately rushed to nearby medical camp where he was declared brought dead.
About 45 pilgrims have so far died due to health problems, militant attack and accidents in the Kashmir valley since the commencement of the 40-day-long pilgrimage from both shortest Baltal and traditional Pahalgam tracks from June 29.
The annual yatra will conclude on August 7. (Agencies)
