The situation at Kotilingala ghat has been brought under control. Though there is no stampede, the heat has increased and lack of drinking water and medical facilities is leading some pilgrims to swoon. The situation near the gate, through which people rushed in and caused the stampede, has also calmed down. People rushing inside the ghat area through a single entrance is the cause for stampede, it is said.
