Topic: Stampede at temple in central India kills 10, dozens injured


A stampede at a Hindu temple in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh killed at least 10 people on Monday and injured dozens, police and media said. Several thousand pilgrims had gathered at the Kamtanath temple for prayers ahead of a new moon night when an electrical spark on temple premises triggered a rush for the doors. Some of the devotees were lying on the temple floor, participating in a ritual, when the accident happened, said state police officer Pawan Shrivastav. In October, at least 89 people were killed and more than 100 injured in a stampede at a bridge leading to a remote Hindu temple in the same state.
