The KKR’s felicitation ceremony had to witness many people getting injured because of it. The people who got injured include seven to eight people which even consisted of a women and a child getting injured, says Joint Commissioner of police. Lot of unruly scenes unfolded here in the areas surrounding the Eden Gardens when a large number of people gathered to wish the team and witness the felicitation of the team Kolkata Knight Riders.
It’s comes to our notice that it was the governments fault when it made the announcement that “ All sport lovers welcome” to witness the function, thousands of people got attracted to it and started flocking towards the stadium early morning. When there was no proper arrangement made to accommodate if large number people turn-up. Though the State government had announced that entry passes would have to be collected, people converged in large numbers at the venue.Thus by mid-day a sudden chaos erupted with the crowd making things difficult to manage. Forcefully the police department had to resort to baton charge thus resulting in many people getting injured.
“Entry passes have been over issued. If the stadium has a capacity of 100 seats, more than 500 passes were issued. Then there are people who arrived without passes”- says a policemen
Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee then issued apology statement saying “We are really sorry. There are many waiting here since morning who have not even got water to drink… Next time, we will conduct such programmes on Brigade Parade Ground so that we can accommodate all”. She even expressed regret that many could not be allowed to witness the grand felicitation programme in the Eden Gardens for want of space.
