stampede

Two dozen people are feared killed while another 30 may be injured due to a stampede at Mumbai’s Elphinstone railway station on Friday. The stampede took place on foot overbridge linking Elphinstone Road and Parel suburban railway stations. Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s disaster management unit said “required agencies have been mobilised.” It was said that Elphinstone station is usually crowded during peak hours as it caters to office-goers in the Lower Parel area. The station, on the Western Line of the Mumbai suburban rail network, also connects to Parel station on the Central line.

Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MLA Ajay Choudhary reacted to Mumbai stampede and said that government is not able to provide basic facilities and services at stations but aspires of bullet trains. Some of the disturbing footage viral on social media, even though unconfirmed, shows how people are caught in the stampede. Initial photos from the scene show people lying on the ground after they jumped from the bridge to save themselves.
