Hundred of pilgrims died in stampede at Sabarimala celebration in Kerala

More than 100 people have been killed while coming back from a religious feast that takes place annually on a hilltop temple in Sabarimala area in Kerala, Southeastern India. The pilgrims died because of a stampede which occured following a car crash. A vehicle with pilgrims plunged into the crowd after the driver lost control. The devotees who were walking along a Pulimedu forest path in Idukki district of Kerala, became scared and got trapped in the stampede. The hindi feast is in general attended by 2 million people and following the ending ceremony on Friday it was thought that more than 100,000 took the paths out through the dense forests.
