A 22-year-old Delhi University student was severely injured when a light stand came crashing down on a group of performers during a college festival.

The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon in Deshbandhu College, South Delhi, when a group of students were performing during a fashion show.

The victim, Utkarsh Dahiya, a B.Com Programme student of Aurobindo college, was among those participating in the show at the host college’s annual fest ‘Sabrang’.

An FIR has been registered in connection with the incident. A 40-second video capturing the incident has gone viral. “A case has been registered and the organisers are being questioned,” a senior police officer said.

Soon after the incident, he was rushed to a nearby hospital from where he was referred to Noida. He was admitted to the ICU in a private hospital in Noida on Tuesday but has been shifted to a private ward today.
