According to police, more than 100,000 people were in a queue, many waiting since Sunday night to get into the famous Baidyanath Temple, when the stampede occurred.

Deoghar is 300 km from here.

All the injured have been admitted to Sadar hospital in Deoghar for treatment, Deputy Commissioner Amit Kumar said, adding the stampede was a result of “large crowd gathering”.
