New Delhi, Sep. 11 (ANI): The Additional District Magistrate of Delhi on Friday visited the government school where five girl students had died in a stampede on Thursday.

On being asked about the possible causes of the stampede, A K Kaushik said he had not reached on conclusions as yet.

"Investigation is on, can't tell you when the report will be submitted. We will examine and everything and will put that in the report," Kaushik said.

On Thursday, at least 32 students were injured on the government school premises, which is located in Kahujri Khas area.

Meanwhile, demanding justice for their deceased daughters, parents have said that they feel humiliated with the compensation amount announced by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

"Girls were giving their exams on the top floor of the building, some boys standing there tried to tease them, they ran and the stampede took place. There should be some action against the school authorities.

"The chief minister gave us a compensation of hundred thousands, we do not want the compensation, if the child of the chief dies we will gather 2 million rupees through donations. We do not need money we need justice, today I have lost my daughter, tomorrow someone else might lose his children," Diwan, uncle of a victim said.

According to reports, stampede was caused after students started running towards building's narrow exit gate when rumours spread that the water flooding the school building was charged with electric current. (ANI)
