Due to heavy snowfall in Kedarnath and Badrinath, the late-night Char Dham pilgrims are being stopped by the police at Srinagar town in Pauri Garhwal district.
All pilgrims are being requested to stay in nearby cities in the wake of snowfall and rains in the low-lying areas. The unseasonal snow and rain are posing a major problem.
“At Srinagar in Pauri Garhwal district, police have made checking points near NIT Uttarakhand and near Badrinath bus stand where Char Dham Yatris are being stopped and those who have online bookings for a night stay will be allowed to go towards Rudraprayag. But the passengers who have not booked the passes are being appealed to stay in Srinagar only,” SHO Srinagar Ravi Saini was quoted as saying by ANI.
