Hathras stampede LIVE: NCW chief visits site of incident; UP govt orders judicial probe

Hathras stampede: FIR filed but religious leader not named

On Wednesday, the Uttar Pradesh Police registered an FIR at the Sikandra Rau police station regarding a stampede that resulted in the deaths of 121 people during a religious event in the Hathras district. The incident occurred on Tuesday, but Bhole Baba, the organizer of the 'Satsang' that led to the stampede, was not mentioned in the FIR.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited Hathras on Wednesday in the aftermath of the tragic stampede. The state government had previously announced a compensation of ₹2 lakh for the families of those who lost their lives in the incident.

Latest Developments:

  • On Tuesday night, numerous bodies were placed on ice blocks inside the government hospital following the stampede. Outside, in the rain, mourning relatives waited to collect their loved ones' remains. Officials reported 121 deaths by Wednesday morning. The victims had gathered near Phulrai village in the Sikandrarau area for a 'Satsang' by Bhole Baba.

  • RSS and Bajrang Dal volunteers remained at the hospital throughout the afternoon, providing water and assisting the victims' relatives. They helped guide medical procedures and offered support to those in shock. Aniket, a Bajrang Dal volunteer, noted the shortage of ambulances, stating, "The number of ambulances was inadequate for the bodies we have seen here today."

  • Amidst the chaos, a woman was seen crying among several bodies in a truck, pleading for help to retrieve her daughter's body. The state government announced that Agra's additional director general of police and Aligarh's divisional commissioner are among those investigating the incident. They have been directed to submit their findings within 24 hours.

  • District Magistrate Ashish Kumar addressed the media, explaining that the event was a private function authorized by the sub-divisional magistrate. He stated that while the local administration ensured security outside the venue, the organizers were responsible for the internal arrangements.
