Event details

Over 125 students at a summer camp near Rajgad Fort in Pune district were attacked by a swarm of honey bees, an official said Friday. The incident happened near Gunjavane village in Velhe tehsil on Thursday. "The students, all in the 12-16 age group, were carrying out various activities as part of the summer camp when the bee attack took place. Local residents rushed there and took the students in their houses to save them from getting stung," said Manoj Jadhav, Block development officer of Velhe tehsil.
