Sonepat: A large number of men, women and children today took a holy dip in the river Yamuna near Sonepat on the occasion of Magh Purnima.

An endless stream of devotees started pouring in at around 3 AM. Braving the chilly winds, the devotees took the dip, which is the last dip taken during the month of Magh today.

After the holy dip, the devotees thronged the nearby temples and other religious places, besides joining the religious congregations.

Elaborate security arrangements were made by the police at various ghats, including Bega, Memarpur, Jhundpur and Garh Mirakhpur on this occasion to check any untoward incidents.
