Vandiperiyar (Ker), Jan 16 (Agencies): Forensic experts and a special team of the Crime Branch of Kerala police probed Friday's stampede at Pullumedu near Sabarimala that claimed 102 lives and are expected to submit their report next week.

S Surendran, heading the crime branch team, said the report including forensic findings would be submitted to Additional Director General of Police (Crime Branch) Vinson M Paul in four days.

The six-member team visited the accident spot and gathered evidence. Forensic experts also visited Pullumedu area where the mishap occurred, official sources said.

Besides the Crime Branch probe, Kerala government has also announced a judicial inquiry into the mishap which occurred when devotees were heading home after witnessing 'Makara Jyoti' (celestial light on the eastern horizon which marks the culmination of the two month long pilgrimage season.

Initial reports had stated that a minor accident involving a jeep and an autorickshaw led to a commotion triggering the stampede.

Police on Sunday denied reports that sufficient number of personnel were not deployed along the Pullumedu route and said it was the Forest Department's responsibility to make adequate arrangements as the area is part of Periyar Tiger Reserve.

Meanwhile, six more bodies at Kumali hospital were identified and arrangements made to transport them to their respective towns. Most of the deceased were from Tamil Nadu.

The identity of four more victims is yet to be ascertained, hospital sources said.

Meanwhile, the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) is expected to seek a detailed report from the state Wildlife Department on the stampede in the Periyar Tiger Reserve.

A senior Wildlife official said it was normal for NTCA to seek details of accidents in a tiger reserve.

NTCA had taken serious note of reports of unregulated entry of vehicles into the sanctuary without permission, he said.

"For matters concerning belief and tradition, some kind of relaxation can be given. But now that a tragedy of such a magnitude has taken place, we have to ponder over what type of improvement should be made on regulating people and vehicles in the area", the official told PTI.

The NTCA would ask the Field Director of PTR to submit the details, he said.
