Earlier in 2018, fifteen people were reported injured in a mishap during a tractor-race event in Rajasthan’s Sri Ganganagar area. The incident took place when a tin shed of the stadium collapsed during the event in city’s Padampur area, apparently due to the weight of a large number of spectators sitting over it. The incident occurred when hundreds of people had gathered to watch the tractor show in the Padampur Dhaan mandi area. Srigangangar District Collector Gyana Ram informed that 15 people were injured in the incident.

“Ten of them are admitted to the local hospital in Padampur and five are undergoing treatment at Sriganganagar district hospital and are stated to be in a critical condition,” he was quoted as saying.

An inquiry was ordered into the matter.
