District collector Tara Chand Meena and Rajendra Prasad Goyal, SP Chittorgarh visited the place. The victims were migrating with the herd of sheep from Madhya Pradesh towards Marwar. The shepherds with the herd had halted in the jungle near Dhamancha village. Late in the night heavy rains with thunder and lightning lashed the area.
