The second victim of the stampede at New Delhi Railway Station was identified on Tuesday as Govind Rai of Begusarai district in Bihar. His body was identified this morning at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narain hospital mortuary by his father Anil Rai, who was injured in the stampede, which claimed two lives on Sunday.

"Anil, who suffered minor injuries, was discharged from LNJP hospital on Monday," Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Railways)
