Tragedy struck at a massive BSP rally on Sunday when two aged women were killed and more than a dozen others injured during a stampede, police said.

The incident happened when a large group was trying to force its entry from gate number 1 at the Kanshiram Smarak Sthal, the rally venue. 

The two women fell down in the melee and got crushed by others. The injured were taken to the Lokbandhu Hospital where the condition of one person was said to be critical.

Thousands gathered at the venue to attend the rally to mark the 10th death anniversary of Bahujan Samaj Party(BSP) founder Kanshi Ram.
