The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said that the stampede in Mithibai college took place during a concert by rapper Divine, who was performing at College’s annual Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS) festival – Colosseum – at Jashoda Rang Mandir (JRM) Ground.
An official from the BMC’s disaster cell told Hindustan Times, “The incident was first reported at around 10:30pm. It was open ground and as the gate crashed, the kids received severe injuries.”
Confirming the incident, the Juhu Police said that some people have been admitted to hospital but declined to confirm the number or the extent of injuries.
Investigations are underway to ascertain the cause of the stampede.
