11 pilgims died in Jharkhande while worshiping for Srabani Mela. 50 were wounded by this. It occurred 5.00 in the morning today. The wounded were admitted into Deoghar Hospital. Some of them have serious condition.
It was known from NNI the news agency. P Murugan the SP said, administration thought of 90 thousand of the visitors but it crossed 150 thousand.
According to Bidhayok Narayan Das, of course the administration did something wrong. Pilgrims crowd in Deoghar in Jharkhande in Jyotirlingo of Babadham temple. As a sudden rush started, pilgrims got foot pressed. They get there for virtue.
A witness complained, the rush began for police charging against the queue.
But local DC denied, there was no stick in police’s hand. So it’s not in the vogue. He said, the temple gate opened at 4.00 in the morning. As the pilgrims had a rush to reach there, foot press took place.
BJP MP Nishikant Dube accused his govt to be responsible for this.
