Even as the state government ordered a judicial inquiry into the Ratangarh stampede, senior Congress leader DIgvijay Singh, also from Madhya Pradesh, took on the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government.
Shocking accounts from survivors of the Ratangarh stampede have raised doubts on the role played by the local police administration during and immediately after the tragedy.
Several eyewitnesses claimed that policemen actually dumped pilgrims’ bodies into the river, in an alleged bid to mask the death toll. While the official death toll stands at 115, several people have been reported missing and divers are currently looking for more bodies. A report in the Times of India even said some policemen “stole money and valuables from the bodies” before tossing them off the bridge. The report quotes a survivor named Asish, 15, who told media that policemen pushed him off the bridge when he went to claim the body of his 5-year-old brother. “I fell on my knees and begged the cops to allow me to take my brother’s body home. But they pushed me off the bridge, saying that I too should die,” he was quoted as saying.
