At least two people died and dozens others were injured during a stampede in a temple in northern India during the festival of Radha Ashtami.

Three people were killed and 12 others injured in a stampede at the Radharani temple in India's northern Uttar Pradesh state early on Sunday morning.

It was at first unclear what caused commotion but later investigation revealed it all started when a devotee fell down the staircase taking others with her and creating a chaos and panic that led to the stampede..

Stampedes are relatively common at temples in India where thousands of people gather to pray during festivals. In January 2011, more than a 100 people were killed at the Hindu shrine of Sabarimala during a festival in the southern state of Kerala.
