The crowd at the Mahotsav, which began on Thursday at the Kubereshwar Dham, which is situated in Madhya Pradesh’s Sehore, got uncontrollable in order to receive a Rudraksha. Thousands of people, who had found their places in queues at 10 counters on Wednesday night only, started moving forward by climbing on each other. A 20-KM jam was witnessed on the Bhopal-Indore Highway.

On Thursday morning, the pushing and shoving among the people in the crowd increased so much that they started feeling suffocated, and people started fainting and falling on the ground. Amidst such circumstances, the relatives of the ill people rushed and took them to the health centre made inside the katha sthal of the Dham. The health centre then shut down after afternoon. A 50-year-old woman from Malegaon, Nasik, Mangalabai, who had fallen down in the crowd lost her life.

The police have also received the report of three women from Chhattisgarh’s Bhilai, Rajasthan’s Gangapur, and Buldhana, going missing. In the wake of the deteriorating situation, the Rudraksha distibution was stopped by Pandit Pradeep Mishra in the afternoon.
