45 dead, 30 injured as water tank collapses in Rajasthan town
Jaipur, Aug 29: At least 45 people were killed and 30 injured when a water tank collapsed on Sunday at a village fair in Kama town of Rajasthan`s Bharatpur district, about 225km from here, a district official said.

Bharatput district collector R Venkateshwaran said the victims were among the 200 people who were sitting on the tank and watching a wrestling competition at the Bhojan Thali Mela when the tank gave way.

The victims plunged into the water-filled tank which came crashing down, he told chief secretary R L Meena link

Please post a credible News link other than Zee News. This news isn't there on any major News site. Authenticity doubtful.

JAIPUR, India (Reuters) - Forty-seven people were killed and 30 injured on Sunday when a water storage tank they were sitting on collapsed in the western Indian state of Rajasthan, a government official said.

The incident took place about 6 p.m. (1230 GMT) in Kama town of Bharatpur district, about 200 km (125 miles) east of the state capital, Jaipur.

The group was using the concrete water tank, meant to store water for the area, as a stand to watch a wrestling match.

Eight people were being treated in a local hospital while the rest had been discharged, R. Venkateshwaran, the area's top administrator, said, adding the death toll was unlikely to rise.



"The tank on which they were sitting collapsed due to the weight," he said. "All of them fell into the tank which had very little water. They died as the concrete fell on them."

The wrestling match was part of a local annual festival in the small town.

Surendra, these days Breaking News is more about political happenings or Islamic terrorism. And tellme, we all enjoy bashing terrorist Muslims or our Congress government. So really, if this tank fell.. who cares! Maybe they wil blame this on Narendra Modi and then announce a lakh of rupees to the victim's kin.

It is sad that nobody thinks such news is important anymore. As you correctly pointed out, everyone just wants to talk tough on Pakistan and terrorism and thereby displayed true patriotism. Patriotism is defined by how virulent you can get against Muslims!!

Those living in denial need to take a long hard look. An Indian life is expendible. Indians die, nobody cares. We ourselves dont care then why blame outsiders. Its a sad state of affairs.

40 people died because of this accident, yet nobody bothers to try and analyze what was the cause for this problem and how to prevent such things from happening in future.

What kind of idiots are we attracting now on echarcha, that they cannot differentiate between accidents and murders

Edit: sorry for my comment, looks like this one is an old one who just came alive again
