accident mumbai

At least two dozen people have been killed and 39 others injured in a stampede that broke out at a narrow railway foot over-bridge connecting the Parel-Elphinstone Road stations of Western Railway on Friday morning.

President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have expressed condolences to the bereaved families. The cause of the stampede was not known, but witnesses claimed that a sudden rumour of a suspected electrical short-circuit sparked off a panic run. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal announced ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh to be given by the state goverment and Rs 5 lakh by the Railways to the families of the deceased people. He also added that wherever there is a need for foot over bridges to be widened, we will do it immediately on high priority.

 Mumbai Stampede Helpline numbers: Churchgate station- 22039840, Mumbai Central station- 23051665 and Elphinstone Road station- 24301614.
