Really sad news!! Many people died and injured by this fire tragedy. Even roof of temple and houses in vicinity were also damaged. People over there ran around in panic, when blast cut off the power supply in temple complex, plunging it into darkness. Rescue went on all night and victims had been taken out of the rubble.

Sources said there was uncertainty regarding the fireworks show till Saturday afternoon, hours before it began. “But the temple authorities managed to get the support of political parties. The fireworks display is held dear by many, it is an emotional issue. It was only in the evening that the temple announced that the show would be held.
