In view of heavy rush, officials have suspended the Vaishno Devi Cave Shrine pilgrimage from the Katra base camp, reports said.

Officials further said they have closed the ticket counter almost two hours before the scheduled closure following the huge crowd of pilgrims, who are eager to go on a pilgrimage to Vaishno Devi Cave Shrine.

As a result, 15,000-20,000 pilgrims got stranded at the Katra base camp, reports said.
