    Images: Thunderstorm kills seven, injures 90 in Kumbh Mela

    Seven people were killed and around 90 injured when a thunderstorm flattened makeshifts tents of pilgrims in the ongoing Simhatha Kumbh Mela

    "Seven people have been killed and 90 other injured in and around the Mela area," Ujjain Divisional Commissioner Ravindra Pastaur told PTI. The second 'Shahi Snan' (royal bath) is slated for May 9.
     
    Prima facie, the casualties resulted due to the collapse of tents and some gates erected at the Kumbh area. Among the deceased is a woman pilgrim who was killed in Undasa area when lightning struck her.
     
    According to police official B S Chauhan, nearly a third of the tents put up by the pilgrims have blown away in the squall. It will take at least a week to erect them again, he said. Authorities fear that the death toll may rise as the rescuers are clearing the collapsed tents and pulling out the people trapped under them.
     
    Terming the incident as painful, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has announced an exgratia of Rs. 2 lakh each to the kin of the deceased persons and Rs 50,000 to seriously injured and Rs 25,000 to the minor injured, an official spokesman said.

    According to eye witnesses, a big drainage suffered a breach on Ramghat on the banks of Kshipra River as a result of which filthy water is gushing into the river.
