In a tragic incident, seven people were killed and 70 injured in a stampede at the Ujjain Kumbh Mela on 5 May.
The injured have been taken to the hospital. However, Ujjain Kumbh Mela authorities have denied that a stampede had caused the deaths.
The Times of India quoted the authorities as saying that a huge tent - built for the mela - fell on the devotees after it collapsed due to strong wing and heavy rainfall.
Officials assured that security arrangements had been made for the hordes of people visiting the month-long Kumbh mela.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to share his anguish over the unfortunate incident.
Anguished over the loss of lives at the Kumbh due to heavy rains. May Almighty give strength to the bereaved families to overcome the grief.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) May 5, 2016
