Dussera Festivities turned gory in Patna due to the mischief of miscreants.
The celebration of Dassehra ended up horribly due to stampede. The celebration of Dussehra was coming to an end with the burning of Ravana, symbolically. Some miscreants spilled out the news of a calamity. Believing this, people started running helter-skelter. The result was a big stampede and the death of 32 innocent people.
This happened in Patna, Bihar, India. The place of celebration, Gandhi Maidan turned gory with 32 innocent people losing their lives and many more grievously injured. The injured have been admitted to hospital and the death toll is likely to increase.
A crowd of more than 1000 people had gathered to see the victory of good over evil. The festivities had come to an end and people were slowly starting to return to their home, when death struck them. The entire place turned into a gory scene within a short period. All because of rumors spread by miscreants knowingly or unknowingly.
This is not the first time that such stampedes have occurred. Every now and then such stampedes keep occurring, especially during religious gatherings. It is a tragedy that evil minded people take advantage of such situations and cause loss of life.
