UP Hathras Stampede LIVE Updates: The Uttar Pradesh Police filed a First Information Report (FIR) on Wednesday against the organizers of the religious congregation in Hathras, where at least 121 people lost their lives in a stampede.

Notably, the FIR does not include Baba Narayan Hari, also known as Saakar Vishwa Hari Bhole Baba, as an accused.

Death toll in Hathras Stampede rises to 116; people died due to suffocation after the stampede broke out during the conclusion of a ‘Satsang’ at Phulrai village near Mandi of Sikandrarau in Hathras. A Satsang is a Hindu religious congregation that usually takes place overnight.

"Twenty-seven bodies have arrived in Etah hospital. Among those killed are 23 women, three children and a man," Senior Superintendent of Police, Etah, Rajesh Kumar Singh said.

The stampede apparently occurred due to overcrowding, Sikandara Rao police station SHO Ashish Kumar said.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath expressed condolences to the families of those killed in the stampede. He instructed officials to reach the accident site and carry out relief measures.

UP Hathras Stampede LIVE Updates: Anti-social elements behind stampede, Bhole Baba never lets people touch his feet, says Lawyer

A lawyer representing Bhole Baba claimed Wednesday that "anti-social elements" were behind the stampede at the preacher's 'satsang' here in which 121 people died a day back, and contradicted preliminary reports that the tragedy struck when his followers rushed to collect the soil touched by his feet.

According to preliminary government reports, the stampede occurred when a large number of his followers, mostly women, rushed towards Baba Narayan Hari alias Saakar Vishwa Hari Bhole Baba when he was leaving to get a closer glimpse of the preacher and collect his "charan raj".

"Some anti-social elements hatched a conspiracy. When Narayan Saakar Hari left the venue, his vehicles left, our volunteers and followers failed to understand what was happening due to the conspiracy. This was done as per a plan and should be investigated," lawyer A P Singh told PTI.
