To watch them, women and children of more than a dozen villages reached here on Sunday. More than 150 women and children were present at the said Pandal.

The people present there did not get a chance to apprehend the situation and many of them sustained burn injuries.

The President of the Organising Committee, Baccha Yadav was booked by the Bhadohi Police, reports said.
