At least 20 Amarnath Yatra pilgrims were injured on Thursday when the speeding bus in which they were travelling rammed into a truck on Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Kulgam district.

"While 18 Yatris sustained minor injuries, two of them were serious and have been shifted to government medical college hospital in Anantnag district", police said.

The incident was caught on a closed circuit television camera. The footage shows the speeding bus on a wet road ramming into a big dump truck that was taking a U-turn at the crossing.

Meanwhile, the Amarnath Yatra has been suspended on the Pahalgam as well as Baltal routes on Thursday due to heavy rainfall in the Kashmir Valley, officials said.
