Dozens of people killed in India in stampede at religious festival

At least 32 people were killed on Friday in a stampede in eastern India triggered by rumors that an electrical wire had fallen on people during a religious festival.

India celebrated Dussehra on Friday, a Hindu festival symbolizing the victory of good over evil. The stampede occurred in Patna, the capital of Bihar state, as thousands of people were returning home after attending the festival. Relatives of the injured gathered outside a hospital in Patna and tried to get inside the building, but were blocked by police.
