Sarees on sale for Rs 10 only, witnesses Stampede-like situation, several injured

The wedding season is ON and popular shopping malls have just introduced new offers and great deals. The competitive prices and indefinite collections are making public go gaga over shopping malls and one of them is CMR Shopping Mall in Siddipet. The exciting offer over there was downright attractive and grabbed everyone's attention. But the gathering was in such a huge number that a mass stampede took place. About 15 women were badly injured and people panicked making the situation much worse.
 
CMR mall has been said to have announced a crazy offer of selling one saree for 10 rupees. Being a wedding season and a weekend, ladies felt the immediate urge to grab as many sarees as possible. Unfortunately, the situation left some women trampled.
 
The management of CMR stated that they did not expect such a massive crowd and hence, could not make the proper arrangements. Not only did lack security but also people faced anxiety attacks due to suffocation. In addition, a woman filed a complaint that she has lost a gold chain and some cash during the incident. The victims are soon planning to charge CMR branch manager for being apathetic towards the arrangements.
