Dharamsala, October 13

Manphool, a pilgrim from UP, jumped into ‘havan kund’ in the Bajjreshwari Devi temple in Kangra this evening. He sustained 40 per cent burns and was admitted to Tanda medical college where his condition is stated to be stable.

Reports said the pilgrim suddenly jumped into ‘havan kund’ where yajna was being performed on Durga Ashtami yelling ‘Jai Ma Jawala’. The pilgrims and other persons present on the spot immediately pulled him out and he was shifted to Tanda Medical college. A case has been registered against him.

There was a huge rush of pilgrims at the temple and the conditions laid down for controlling Covid were thrown to the winds. — TNS
