Stampede-like situation at PM's rally, 16 injured in Bengal

Feb 02, 2019 20:54 IST

Nearly 16 people including several women and children were injured after a stampede-like situation broke out at the venue of PM Modi's rally in Bengal's North 24 Parganas. Hundreds of supporters who were standing outside the venue tried to barge into the inner ring of the rally ground, leading to commotion. The prime minister tried to pacify the crowd by asking them to maintain order, but he had to cut his speech short as supporters started throwing chairs towards the stage to make space.
