At least two women were killed and 20 people were injured in a stampede at a religious festival in the eastern Indian state of Odisha on Saturday. A police official said the stampede broke out when tens of thousands of devotees were pulling a chariot of deities in the state's holy town of Puri on the occasion of Rath Yatra. During the festival, devotees pulled a chariot of the Hindu god Jagannath, his brother Balabhadra and sister Subhadra. The festival is celebrated mainly in Puri. The injured were admitted to nearby hospitals.
