A stampede-like situation was seen at Maharashtra’s Thane Railway station as panicked passengers clamoured to catch trains following the aftermath of heavy rains and gusty winds that caused significant destruction in Mumbai and surrounding areas

In another footage, some women can be seen toppling over and falling to the ground amidst the chaos of the busy railway station while other passengers push and run over each other in an attempt to catch the train, creating a stampede-like situation.

Earlier in the day, local train services on the Central Railway were suspended in Mumbai for more than two hours after the overhead equipment got damaged between two stations due to the storm and rains on Monday, an official said.

The overhead pole got bent due to strong winds between Thane and Mulund stations, because of which the services were suspended around 4.15 pm, the official from Central Railway said.

Slow train services on the main corridor resumed around 6.45 pm after more than two hours.

“Suburban services on both the main and harbour lines are running now. The trains are, however, 25 to 30 minutes late,” said Swapnil Nila, chief spokesperson of Central Railway.

According to commuters, the trains took longer to reach their destinations than usual. “A fast train from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) to Kasara, scheduled for 4.50 pm left at 5.15 pm, and reached Thane after 7.30 pm, though usually it takes just 45 minutes to cover the distance,” a commuter activist said.
