Yatra to the holy cave shrine has been suspended for now.  The rescue operations have been underway as many people are feared trapped under the debris.

Earlier, 4 persons including three pilgrims were killed and nine injured in a landslide triggered by heavy rains enroute to the cave shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi.

The landslide had occurred on Banganga-Ardhkuwari road around midnight and the debris fell on a shelter where the pilgrims were sitting.
