Stampede at Sannidhanam caused by rush, says Spl Branch

Sabarimala: The special branch police report on the stampede near Malikappuram, in which about 40 persons were injured, says that it was caused by the huge rush just after the deity was adorned with a gold robe (Thanka Anki). During the scramble, a few barricades fell down and in the melee, several Ayyappans were injured. But the police claimed that they didn't get such a report. DIG Sreejith has been assigned the task of inquiry into the incident. Meanwhile, Devaswom minister Kadakampalli Surendran said that the police should not be blamed for the stampede.
