Death toll in Hathras Stampede rises to 116; people died due to suffocation after the stampede broke out during the conclusion of a ‘Satsang’ at Phulrai village near Mandi of Sikandrarau in Hathras. A Satsang is a Hindu religious congregation that usually takes place overnight.

"Twenty-seven bodies have arrived in Etah hospital. Among those killed are 23 women, three children and a man," Senior Superintendent of Police, Etah, Rajesh Kumar Singh said.

The stampede apparently occurred due to overcrowding, Sikandara Rao police station SHO Ashish Kumar said.
