It was learnt that the victims were trying to force their way out of the venue of the event (i.e., the crowded Rwang Pam Township Stadium, which at the time was filled beyond capacity) when they were trampled upon by other attendees, thus sustaining critical injuring and ultimately dying before they could be rushed to the hospital.

This unfortunate happening leaves a sour taste in the mouth of the families of the deceased, but several people that our correspondent spoke to on ground at the event, said for drastic change to come sacrifices/losses such as this would have to happen. They bemoaned the victims praying for God to grant them eternal rest.
