Nineteen of the 22 people killed in a stampede at a railway foot overbridge (FOB) here this morning have been identified, a civic official said.
"We carried out a detailed verification of documents and ascertained the identity of 19 victims (deceased) so far," I A Kundan, Additional Municipal Commissioner, told PTI.
A help desk has been set up at KEM Hospital to facilitate the identity of those killed, who were taken to the civic body-run medical facility, and share details with their relatives, she said.
Postmortem examinations are being carried out after which the bodies will be handed over to their families, the officer said.
