The holy Amarnath Yatra has started from July 1 among the challenges of natural calamities. In this journey that lasted for 45 days, ITBP jawans are engaged in the security of devotees day and night. During the visit, when the pilgrims were proceeding for Baba Barkhani, landslides occurred in the hills at the same time, and large pieces of stone started coming fast towards the road. The jawans deployed in the security stood like a rock in front of heavy pieces of stone and prevented the pilgrims from falling stones. Now the video of this incident has become viral.
The video clearly shows that after landslide, the piece of stone falls rapidly towards the bottom and travels towards the travel route. While the heavy piece of stone was rolling downwards, devotees were passing through a large number of times during that time. Seeing this, the ITBP jawans immediately made the human chain off the road and prevented the stone fragment from falling on the road.
Official Twitter Handle of ITBP shared the video of whole episode which is now becoming viral on social media. Everyone is praising the bravery of ITBP’s Jawans.
