This is the most auspicious of six bathing days at the event, billed as the world's biggest human gathering.

 

However, according to reports, 35 people died in a stampede at a railway station in the nearby city of Allahabad.

 

Reports added that 28 of those who died when a footbridge at the station collapsed, were female, and seven were male.

 

Dozens more people were injured.
