Post the terror attack more than 4,000 pilgrims left for the Amarnath cave shrine yesterday from Jammu, as per PTI reports, while on the day of terror attack 2,430 pilgrims left Jammu for the high altitude cave shrine.

Confirming the developments, Superintendent of Police (SP) Shopian, Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar, said "Touseef was cooperating with the investigators".
