The group includes 16 males and 16 females. Among them, 28 pilgrims will report to the Delhi State Haj Committee at Haj Manzil, Turkman Gate, Asif Ali Road, New Delhi, while the remaining 4 will report to Srinagar.
The District Administration Samba has appointed a Nodal Officer and a Liaison Officer to ensure all necessary arrangements for the pilgrims’ safe and comfortable travel to Haj House in Srinagar and Haj Manzil in Delhi, from where they will depart for Saudi Arabia via the international airports in Delhi and Srinagar.
Interacting with the pilgrims, DC Sharma congratulated them on their opportunity to perform the holy Haj and wished them a safe and secure pilgrimage.
