    ALLAHABAD: At least 13 people are feared dead and several injured in a stampede that broke out at Allahabad railway station on Sunday evening, according to Times Now. Earlier, the toll was said to be 15.

    However, authorities remained tight-lipped about the number of casualties.

    According to reports, the stampede broke out after a railing on a footoverbridge collapsed at the platform number 6 of Allahabad railway station.

    Eyewitnesses, however, said that the stampede was triggered after police lathicharged people in order to control the huge rush at the station.

    Many of the injured complained that administration delayed action by over 2 hours following the tragic incident.

    Over three crore people converged at the Sangam for a holy dip on the occasion of " Mauni Amavasya" on Sunday, considered the most auspicious day during the 12-yearly congregation.

    That' sad. I hate these huge crowd gathering events where there is zero discipline causing stampede.
