Katra : Four individuals were killed and seven others critically harmed after a landslide happened in the wee hours of Saturday close Ardhkuwari Temple, which lies in the mid of Vaishno Devi Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir’s Katra locale.

Two out of the seven harmed people have been brought to Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Super Specialty Hospital.

Ajit Kumar Sahu, CEO, Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine, said the avalanche happened after heavy rainfall.

“Our team went to the site as soon as the incident was reported to us,” he said. Sahu further said that they always try to ensure the safety of the pilgrims.

Yesterday, two people, including a ten-year-old Mata Vaishno Devi pilgrim, were injured after boulders hit them in the temple area.
