Several people hurt as milling crowd goes berserk at Chiranjeevi Party Meeting

More than 35 fans of Chiranjeevi shifted to Ruia Hospital

Tirupathi, August 26, 2008

The huge turn out witnessed at the maiden public meeting addressed by Chiranjeevi led to a near stampede situation injuring more than one hundred persons. Nearly 35 persons sustained grievous injuries in the melee and they were shifted to the Ruia Government Hospital. The figure includes two persons who suffered electric shock when the power generator connecting the speaker systems burst.

All the patients were shifted to the Acute Medical Care wing for treatment. Even before Chiranjeevi could announce his party name, several members in the crowd complained of suffocation and exhaustion and pleaded with the organizers to provide water or allow them to leave the venue. There were few exit routes available for the crowd to disperse. Though the meeting may have become a mammoth success in terms of crowd, the event turned out to be a nightmare for many.

The crowd management strategies of the organizers virtually bombed and it became evident that the event managers failed to anticipate the rush that a charismatic actor like Chiranjeevi attracts. The number was far beyond they could expect that led to the stampede. The media persons were denied entry and made to wait in the scorching sun for an hour. Turning impatient, the media persons had to virtually gatecrash into the venue. A senior correspondent of English daily suffered a gash of his head and was seen covering the event with bleeding injuries.
