Crowd Mismanagement At Mumbai's Mithibai College Leaves Students Injured

Overcrowding during a singing performance at Mumbai's Mithibai college left 8 students injured


Mumbai: 

Eight students were injured following a "commotion" during a function at Mithibai College in suburban Vile Parle Thursday evening, a civic official said.

The initial reports suggested that there was a stampede, an official of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said it was not a stampede, but a minor incident caused by panic.

Boys from the neighbourhood thronged the college auditorium during a singing performance and some students complained of suffocation, which led to people running helter-skelter, said the official from the BMC's Disaster Management Unit.

Injured students were taken to the nearby Cooper Hospital and their condition was stable, he said.
