Hindu gods abandon followers: 110 killed, 350 injured in Hindu temple fire
At least 110 people were killed and more than 350 others injured in a massive fire that broke out during a fireworks display at Puttingal Hindu temple in Kollam, in the southern Indian state of Kerala early Sunday morning, officials have said.
“It was a spark from the crackers being burst that fell into the stack of crackers kept on ground, leading to the fire.”
“Fire at temple in Kollam is heart-rending and shocking beyond words. My thoughts are with families of the deceased and prayers with the injured,” Indian Prime Minister Modi said, announcing a compensation of 200,000 rupees ($3,000) for the families of each of the victims.
