377 debarred from Haj pilgrimage
Muzaffarnagar: At least 377 people have been debarred from undertaking Haj pilgrimage this year after the Central Haj Committee found them allegedly flouting travel norms.
According to Haj committee sources, the permits of the pilgrims were cancelled as they managed to get it for the second time before the completion of a mandatory gap.
According to rules as specified by the committee, a person cannot undertake pilgrimage twice within a three year period.
Besides this, Rs 51,000, deposited by each of them towards the cost of the pilgrimage, was also forfeited.
Out of the 377, 165 pilgrims are from Uttar Pradesh.
