Wedding turned tragedy: 13 women die after falling into well

A wedding celebration turned into a tragedy as thirteen women succumbed to their injuries on Thursday morning in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh.

The news: The incident occurred at around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Kushinagar’s Nebua Naurangia.

  • According to police, a slab of a well, on which some people were sitting during a wedding-related ritual, broke due to heavy load.
  • Some women and girls had assembled on and around a covered well for ‘Haldi’ ritual, called ‘matkodva’.
  • The slab then broke due to the weight of the women and caved in, with several women falling inside the well.
  • “This happened during a wedding program wherein some people were sitting on a slab of a well and due to heavy load, the slab broke,” S Rajalingam, district magistrate of Kushinagar, told reporters.
  • “An ex-gratia of ₹4 lakh will be given to the kin of the deceased.”
