INS Hamla, a naval base in Mumbai’s Malad, witnessed a stampede on Friday leaving many people injured.

Around 6,000 people had gathered at the naval base for recruitment while only 4,000 were expected to turn up. The overcrowding is believed to be the reason behind the stampede.

Police had to use batons for crowd-management. However, the situation ameliorated after the initial ruckus.
