Delhi Police on Sudnay registered a case of causing death due to negligence against unknown persons in connection with the stampede in New Delhi Railway Station.

The case has been registered under sections 304A (causing death due to negligence) and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act that endangers lives of others) of Indian Penal Code, a senior police official said.

"We have registered the case against unknown persons," a senior police official said.

A 35-year-old woman and a young boy were killed and eight persons injured in a stampede triggered by a last minute change in platforms for two trains at the New Delhi Railway Station, facing summer rush.

The stampede occurred at around 2:45 PM after an announcement was made about the change of platforms for Delhi-Muzaffarpur Sapt Kranti Express and Delhi-Bhagalpur Vikramsila Express.
