Hathras Stampede Tragedy: SIT Probe Panel Report Blames Organisers


The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the Hathras stampede tragedy has submitted its report to the state government. The stampede happened on July 2 in UP’s Hathras district killing 121 people.

The report suggests that the organising committee of ‘satsang’ is responsible for the tragedy as they invited more people than the permitted number and did not make adequate arrangements.

Six officials, including the SDM who gave pefrmission for the ‘satsang’, have been suspended, and nine people, including the main organiser – Devprakash Madhukar – have been arrested.

The SIT report also highlighted the conspiracy angle and has recommended a thorough probe. The SIT has called out held ‘satsang’ organisers responsible for the stampede and said local police and administration did not take the event seriously.

Surajpal Singh aka Bhole Baba Bhole Baba has not been questioned or named as an accused in the case.
