Accident on Ram Navami
This incident took place during the Ram Navami festival at Beleshwar Mahadev Temple in Indore. There was a crowd in the temple and Havan was going on. Due to the crowd, some people sat on the net on the stepwell built inside the temple. Just then, the roof of the stepwell caved in and about 25 people sitting on it fell inside. The Babdi was about 40 feet deep and had water up to 6-7 feet. There was chaos as soon as the Babdi collapsed. As soon as the news was received, the team and leaders along with the top officers of the police administration reached the spot and immediately started the rescue work. Some people were taken out. But not all were lucky. Only their dead bodies came out of the stepwell.
