The deputy chief minister, who accompanied Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to Anantnag, said the injured were out of danger. Meanwhile, Divisional Commissioner Mandeep Bhandari said the Amarnath yatra will continue from Jammu tomorrow. “The yatra will not be disrupted and it will continue as per the plans tomorrow,” he told PTI.
