The body of an unidentified 55-year-old pilgrim was recovered from Pissu top, along the traditional Pahalgam-cave route in Anantnag district on Thursday morning, a police spokesman said.

Subash Chand (40), a resident of Punjab, breathed his last at the Baltal base camp in Ganderbal district late on Wednesday. With this, the death toll in the pilgrimage has risen to eight.
