Amarnath Yatra was suspended yet again on Thursday over growing security concerns. The pilgrims were halted at Ramban until safe passage could be ensured for further journey. 

The Yatra was resumed on Monday three days after it was suspended in wake of the violence in the state. 

Meanwhile, the death toll in the clashes between protesters and security forces in Kashmir crossed 36, as another person shot in police fire scummed to injuries on Wednesday.

Normal life remained paralysed due to curfew-like restrictions in the Valley. Separatist leaders Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Yaseen Malik also called for the strike in the Valley to be extended by two more days (July 14 and 15) and have also asked the people to stage protests after Friday prayers.
