Varanasi: A short-circuit briefly triggered a stampede-like situation Wednesday at a Congress convention here which was being attended by the party general secretary Rahul Gandhi.

Sparks due to short-circuit were witnessed at the tent where the two-day convention is being held and this led to a stampede-like situation with party workers running to safer places, according to eye-witness accounts.

However, the situation was controlled within minutes by snapping power supply to the particular area.

There was no loss to the tent due to short-circuit and no one was injured in the incident.

Gandhi, who inaugurated the UPCC convention this morning, was present at the time of incident.
