Adityanath orders inspection of Kumbh camps after fire
The Chief Minister has asked the Mela administration to provide compensation for the gutted tents and other items.
A fire broke out after a cooking gas cylinder exploded at the 'Digambar Akhada' camp, destroying a large part of the tented area. However, no loss of life was reported.
The Kumbh Mela 2019 starts on Tuesday. The mega religious, spiritual and cultural congregation attracts millions to the confluence of Ganga and Yamuna rivers, and the mystical Saraswati.
