In India, as a result of a stampede that occurred during a mass ritual of “washing away sins” in the Ganges, three people were killed and another six were injured. About it reports AP with a reference to the Indian police.

According to the report, at some point in the ranks of the participants of the ritual on the banks of the river there was a panic, and they fled.

The police finds out that became the reason of such behavior.

The Agency reminds that in January 2005 340 Hindus died during a pilgrimage to a distant temple Mandhar Devi in Western India.

Earlier Indian religious leader Gurmit Rama Rahim Singh, who was convicted of raping two women, was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
