BUSCULADA in India: 12 people died and 13 others were injured

“At least 12 people have lost their lives and 13 are injured,” an AFP official was quoted as saying by AFP.

“The situation could worsen as the road to the hilltop was crowded with believers trying to get there during traditional New Year’s prayers,” he added.

Mata Vaishno Devi is one of the busiest places of worship in northern India. There, tens of thousands of people go there every day to pray.

The riot broke out around 2.45am (Friday, 9.15pm GMT), another official said.

“The government has called for an investigation into the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi altarpiece,” he said.
