Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Monday directed for lifting of an over two-month-old advisory, which asked tourists to leave the valley.

“The governor directed that the Home Department's advisory asking tourists to leave the Valley be lifted immediately. This will be done with effect from October 10,” an official spokesman said.

The state administration on August 2 had issued a security advisory asking Amarnath pilgrims and tourists to leave Kashmir as soon as possible, citing terror threat in the Valley.

The advisory was issued just before the Centre announced the negation of the Article 370 of the constitution and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories on August 5.

The spokesman said the governor issued the directive at a 'Situation cum Security Review' meeting with the advisors and the chief secretary here.
