The disaster happened at the Cochin University of Science and Technology in Kerala state, where students were enjoying a live-music event that was interrupted by rain, leading the audience to head for shelter in a rush that resulted in a stampede.
At least two of the injured people were in critical condition, news website Indian Express reported.
