The Crowds Brought it on Themselves, Says Andhra Stampede Report

Reported by Uma Sudhir, Edited by Shyam Balasubramanian | Updated: Jul 17, 2015 14:27 IST


The report, prepared by District Collector H. Arun Kumar, says it was the pilgrims who were to blame because they breached the barricades after the Chief Minister left. Then, he says, “The police and security personnel deployed there couldn’t be able to control this flow in front of the Pushkar Ghat, the pivotal location of the event where the crowd from all directions had gathered. It resulted in stampede.”
