Bihar Sharif (Nalanda): At least 58 students were injured in a stampede fuelled by rumour of an earthquake at Bihar Sharif Railway station in Nalanda district, police said on Sunday.

Hundreds of students from Supaul, Madhubani, Madhepura and Saharsa districts had reached Bihar Sharif Railway Station by Danapur-Rajgir passenger train around midnight on Saturday night to appear for an ITI examination, Rail Police Station SHO Om Prakash Paswan said.

The students slept on the railway platform as it was quite late, he said. Around 2 am, sound of asbestos sheets falling apart led many of them to believe that it was a tremor, the SHO said.

A stampede followed in which 58 of the students sleeping on the platform got injured, he added. All the injured, who were admitted to Bihar Sharif Sadar Hospital, have been released today after being administered first aid, the SHO added.
