In the recent tragic stampede witnessed in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh, former UP CM and BSP Chief Mayawati writes on X. Taking a jibe at the BJP Government, she said, “The tragic death of 121 innocent women and children etc. in the stampede at the Satsang in Hathras district of UP is a living proof of government negligence, but the report presented to the government by the SIT seems to be more politically motivated than based on the gravity of the incident, which is very sad.”

Mayawati added that the silence in the probe in itself sparks row. She said, ” The silence of the SIT regarding the role of Bhole Baba, the main organiser of this deadly incident, is also a cause of concern among the people. Also, the attempt to give him a clean chit instead of taking strict action against him is a matter of much discussion. The government must pay attention so that such incidents do not recur.”

The Hathras Tragedy

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) has determined that severe overcrowding led to the tragic stampede at a ‘satsang’ in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras, resulting in 121 fatalities.

The report, presented to the Yogi Adityanath government, was compiled by Additional Director General of Police (Agra) Anupam Kulshreshtha and Aligarh Divisional Commissioner Chaitra V. It includes testimonies from 128 witnesses, including police officers present at the event led by Narayan Sakar Hari, known as ‘Bhole Baba.’
