Rajnath Singh

New Delhi,  July 3: Union Minister Rajnath Singh will commence a two-day tour to Jammu and Kashmir on July 4 and 5.

He is scheduled to visit Amarnath shrine on July 5 and will also chair a security review meeting in Srinagar.

Since few days, the valley has witnessed a huge spurt in terror activity.

The first batch of Amarnath yatra flagged off on June 27. It was, however, halted on June 28 due to bad weather condition at the Baltal base camp.

The yatra was resumed a few hours later, after the water cleared out and weather condition improved.

This year around lakh pilgrims from across the country have reportedly registered themselves for the Yatra.

Security measures have been taken keeping in mind the ceasefire violations from across the border and various other terror-related activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

Last year on July 10, at least nine Amarnath pilgrims lost their lives and 19 others got injured in an attack on the bus in Anantnag distric
