Mumbai: Several people were feared injured in a stampede on Friday outside INS Hamla in Malad during a Naval recruitment drive.
Navy official said, "There was a recruitment rally at INS Hamla in Mumbai's Malad on Friday morning for senior secondary recruits. We were expecting a good response from volunteers. However, the response was overwhelming and crowd control created a bit of confusion (in the early hours) which was subsequently handled very efficiently by the local police and navy officials."
"Later the situation was brought under control," he added.
There are allegations that the local police used batons to control the situation. However, the charges were later denied by the state police.
