109 killed in MP temple stampede
Datia (MP), October 13
At least 109 persons were killed today and over 100 injured in a stampede during Navratri festivities near a temple in Madhya Pradesh's Datia district. The stampede was triggered by rumours that a river bridge the devotees were crossing was about to collapse. The state government ordered a judicial inquiry into the mishap which was a shocking re-run of the tragedy at the same site in 2006 when 50 pilgrims were washed away.
Bodies piled up on a bridge following a stampede outside the Ratangarh temple in Datia district of Madhya Pradesh on Sunday.
