Sikar: At least three women died in a stampede that took place outside Khatu Shyamji Temple in Sikar in Rajasthan on Monday morning. Several others were injured in the melee.

According to reports, devotees had been waiting for ‘darshan’ since late Sunday night. They began to rush in as soon as the temple doors opened early on Monday morning, resulting in the stampede around 5 am.

Condoling the deaths, PM Narendra Modi tweeted, “Saddened by the loss of lives due to a stampede at the Khatu Shyamji Temple complex in Sikar, Rajasthan. My thoughts are with the bereaved families. I pray that those who are injured recover at the earliest.”

Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot called the incident unfortunate and offered his condolences to the bereaved families.
