Two people have been killed and 28 others have been injured in a stampede that broke out at the Rajaji Hall in Chennai, where Kalaignar Karunanidhi's mortal remains have been kept for public homage.
According to reports, the incident occurred around 11.15 a.m. People wanting to catch a glimpse of the late DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) Chief started rushing into the grounds through one of the many entrances of Rajaji Hall.
Galore tried to climb over the gates of the neighboring building and into the premises. When the police tried to contain the crowd, many people tripped and fell and were subsequently seriously injured.
