A ‘Tiranga Yatra’ bound for Kashmir was today stopped by police in Samba in Jammu and Kashmir, and sent back.

The 65-odd marchers from Sonipat in Haryana carrying with the national flag conducted prayers at an ashram in Vijaypur in Samba and returned, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Anil Kumar Magotra said.

He said the marchers were on their way to Lal Chowk in Srinagar to unfurl the national flag there on Independence Day.

“We welcomed them and took them to Barrian Ashram where we persuaded them to return,” the SSP said.

They were travelling in about 20 light vehicles and motorcycles, he said.
