“My partner and some other people had gone to Amarnath,” Vasudha said over phone from Nellore. I spoke to him for the last time on Thursday but lost contact after that. I also called the Jammu authorities and the police. Our Additional Resident Commissioner Himanshu Kaushik spoke to me and informed me about the search operation. According to official sources, out of the 20-member team from Rajahmundry to Amarnath, only two women could not be traced.
