According to Aligarh Range IG Shalabh Mathur, 116 deaths have been confirmed thus far. Twenty-seven bodies are in an Etah mortuary, with the rest in Hathras. The bodies are being transported to various hospitals for post-mortem examinations.

Addressing the media shortly after the incident, senior police officer Rajesh Kumar Singh stated that the stampede occurred at a religious event in a village in Hathras district.
