Jammu, May 26: Inspector General of Police Jammu zone Dilbag Singh today made it clear that no one would be allowed to proceed for Amarnath pilgrimage before the scheduled date fixed by Shri Amarnath Shrine Board.
“The pilgrimage to Amarnath Shrine depends upon weather conditions. Pilgrimage will be started as per the scheduled date fixed by SASB and if we will not allow the violation”, IGP told media persons, here today. He was responding to the query regarding the preparedness of police to tackle Bajrang Dal’s call to start Amarnath pilgrimage on June 4, 2012.
He further said that talks between SASB authorities and some “unhappy groups” were going on and it is expected that some positive results would emerge.
He further said that only the registered pilgrims would be allowed for Amarnath pilgrimage this year. “The registration of pilgrims is done by SASB for smooth conduct of pilgrimage. Only limited pilgrims are allowed, so that there is no overcrowding on the track. We will permit only those pilgrims who have registered themselves while the unregistered pilgrims will not be allowed”, he added.
Briefing about additional deployment of police force for Amarnath pilgrimage, Dilbag Singh said that 35-40 additional police companies would be engaged for security. “We will depute more security personnel wherever the need arises” he added.
