Many people are feared to have died after a train collided with a crowd near Amritsar, in the north Indian state of Punjab.

The victims were standing on the railway tracks watching celebrations for the Hindu festival of Dusshera, eyewitnesses told BBC Punjabi.

They did not hear the train approach as they watched a firecracker-filled effigy of the demon king Ravana burn.

Local officials told BBC Punjabi that at least 150 other people are injured.
