At least 50 people were killed and 30 injured on Thursday in a stampede at Ram Janki temple in Pratapgarh district in Uttar Pradesh.

Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Brij Lal said about 48-50 people have been killed in the tragedy in Mangarh area of Kunda town, about 180 km from here.

The stampede occurred after the main gate of the temple collapsed. More than 30 people are reported to be trapped in the debris.

Most of the trapped people are women and children. There was a huge crowd gathered at the temple to attend a ‘bhandara’ (luncheon) of Swami Kripaluji Maharaj.

Police and administrative officials have reached the stampede site and are engaged in rescue and relief work.
