Indian temple stampede leaves 11 dead
11 people have been reported dead after a stampede at a temple in India.
Dozens more were injured in the incident, which occurred during a Hindu festival on Monday morning.
The stampede occurred when thousands of people tried to force their way into the temple when its gates opened.
According to police officer Subodh Kumar, 8 women were among the dead, with 24 injured people being treated at a local hospital.
The people were participating in a month-long festival at the temple of Shiva, the destroyer, one of the main deities of Hinduism.
The incident is fairly common in Indian religious festivals, with 27 people dying during a stampede at a Hindu religious bathing festival in July.
