Police caution pilgrims against fraudulent Char Dham registrations

The Uttarkashi Police have warned pilgrims against using fraudulent means to register for the Char Dham Yatra.

In a post on X, the police said, “The pilgrimage to Shri Yamunotri and Gangotri Dham is going on smoothly. All the pilgrimage routes are open. However, it has come to our notice that some people have embarked on the pilgrimage after registering for Char Dham through fraudulent means. Action will be taken against such people as per the law. Please plan on travel in accordance with the date of registration.”

Earlier, the Rudraprayag Police initiated ‘Operation Maryada’ to maintain order and sanctity during the pilgrimage. The initiative focuses on ensuring that pilgrims behave respectfully and refrain from consuming alcohol or drugs in the Dham area and at Yatra stops.

Deputy Superintendent of Police, Guptkashi, Harshvardhini Suman, said, “‘Operation Maryada’ was launched by the district police for effective action against those who behave indecently and consume intoxicants in the Dham area and the Yatra halts.”

On May 15, Uttarakhand DGP Abhinav Kumar wrote to police chiefs across the country, requesting them not to send any VIPs for the Char Dham Darshan until May 31 due to the large influx of pilgrims.

The Char Dham Yatra, which commenced on May 10, holds immense spiritual significance for many in India. This pilgrimage usually takes place from April-May to October-November each year. It involves visiting four holy sites: Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath.
