    Amritsar Train Accident: Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu Condole The Tragic Loss Of Lives

    |

    Last night, tragedy struck at a Dussehra celebration in Amritsar where at least 58 people lost their lives and 72 injured after a crowd of Dussehra revellers, that had spilled onto railway tracks while watching burning of Ravana effigy, was run over by a train. About 300 people had gathered to watch 'Ravana Dahan' at a ground adjacent to the railway tracks at Joda Phatak.

    Reportedly, when the effigy was lit and the fireworks went off, a section of the crowd started retreating towards the tracks where a large number of people were already standing to watch the event. Unfortunately, two trains arrived from the opposite direction at the same time giving little opportunity to people to escape. As a result of this, several people were mowed down by one of the trains.

    Deeply shocked and sadden by this incident, several Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to condole the tragic loss of lives in this mishap-

    Ajay Devgn
