    At least fifty people have been killed after being run over by a train in northern India while watching an effigy burn, reports say.

    The effigy was being burned near railway tracks in Amritsar, Punjab, in honour of the major Hindu festival of Dussehra, which is celebrated every autumn.

    It is thought 700 people were present at the celebration and an eyewitness said that the crowd could not hear the train coming.

    "The people were sitting on and near the tracks on the outskirts of Amritsar watching the burning of effigies as part of the Dusshera festival when a commuter train ran over them," a police officer told Reuters.

    Pratap Singh Bajwa, a Congress party leader, said that the train did not stop after the accident.

    Many others have been injured and have been rushed to nearby hospitals.

    Amarinder Singh, Punjab chief minister, said he was rushing to the state capital Amritsar to supervise relief and rescue operations.

    "District authorities have been mobilised on war footing," he tweeted.

    Following the accident, a large number of villagers rushed to the site and condemned railroad authorities for not taking precautions in view of the festival.

    While accidents are relatively common on India's sprawling rail network, this incident was among India's deadliest in recent years.

    In 2016, 146 people were killed when a train slid off railroad tracks in eastern India.

    දුස්සෙරා දවසට මෙයාලා පුච්චන්නෙ ලංකාවෙ අනුරුවක් සහ ඒ ලංකාවෙ රජු උන රාවණා ව.
    වසරක් පාසා ලංකාවෙ අනුරූ පුච්චන දවසක් මේ.

    මෙන්න විස්තරේ සිංහළු :

    Indians burned effigies of King Ravana and family members who according legend ruled Sri Lanka before migrants from the transformed the island into an Indianzied Hindu-Bhuddist culture like Burma, Thailand and other East Asian regions.

    In the Dussehar festival effigies of King Ravana, who figures in the subcontinental epic Ramayana, his son Meghnada and brother Kumbakarna are burnt with great fanfare.

    Also known as Lankeshwara, King Ravana is involved in a war with Lord Rama, after his wife Sitha was kidnapped and taken to Sri Lanka.

    ඉංදියාවෙ මෝඩයෝ දැන් රාවණා ත්, ලංකාවත් පිච්චුවට,
    රාමා ඉස්සෙල්ලම පුච්චන්න හැදුවෙ සීතා ව.
    මූට සැක හිතුනා සීතා උස්සන්ගියා නෙවෙයි.. ඒකි රාවනා එක්ක පැනල ගියා කියල.

    When Rama finds Sita he is suddenly unable to trust her. He believes that she has betrayed him with Ravana. Sita is outraged and protests her innocence. She tells Lakshman to build a fire, the fire will burn her if she has done anything wrong. Rama forces his brother to build the fire. Sita steps into the flames. The flames crackle and burn but refuse to burn her. Sita walks through the flames, unharmed. As she walks the flames turn to flowers. (The subject of many paintings) Rama begs for forgiveness.

    සීතා ගින්නට පිච්චුනේ නැති හේතුව දන්නෙත් රාවණා මයි. 😁
