At least 39 killed in India during festival stampede
NASIK, India (AP) - The collapse of a barricade set off a stampede of thousands of people at a Hindu religious festival Wednesday in western India, killing at least 39 people and injuring 125 more, an official said.
The stampede took place as more than a million Hindu devotees assembled for a religious bathing festival in the Godavari River outside the town of Nasik, about 110 miles northeast of Bombay.
Chhagan Bhujbal, deputy chief minister of Maharashtra state, said some 50,000 people were behind the barrier when it fell, sending pilgrims tumbling to the ground.
