Flash floods, cloudbursts and landslides have claimed over a hundred lives in Uttarakhand and left thousands of pilgrims stranded.
The off-spinner took shelter at the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) camp at Joshimath since the last four days after he too could not reach Hemkund Sahib Gurudwara due to bad weather.
The off-spinner on Tuesday accompanied ITBP officials to the forces’ barracks and campuses where stranded pilgrims are being provided food and medicines.
Harbhajan took the role of a counsellor alongside ITBP personnel as he met a number of pilgrims hit by incessant rains and floods.
