Approximately, 60 people were feared killed and over 100 injured in a stampede on 13 October 2013 near a temple at Ratangarh in Madhya Pradesh's Datia district. The stampede was caused by rumours that a bridge they were crossing was about to collapse.

The unfortunate incident occurred when a large number of devotees arrived from Datia and neighbouring Uttar Pradesh at the Durga temple at Ratangarh, about 60 kms from the district headquarters.

Nearly 100 people have been injured in the mishap and they have been admitted in closeby hospitals.
