Maharashtra,Crime/Disaster/Accident, Thu, 19 Apr 2012 IANS

Mumbai, April 19 (IANS) Two commuters were killed Thursday when they fell off an overcrowded local train, an official said as the Central Railway's suburban services continued to be disrupted by signalling woes, leading to chaos in the city. Fifteen people travelling in other packed trains were also injured.


"Two passengers fell off the train between Bhandup and Nahur railway stations on the Central Railway line and are dead; 15 others also lost balance and fell off the crowded trains at various other stations," a Central Railway official told reporters here.


"The injured have been sent to hospitals nearby. They were also given first aid at the railway stations," the official added.


He said that there was no violation found on the part of the Central Railway and that the deaths and injuries were caused due to overcrowding in the trains.


"Central Railway has also announced compensation for those injured and killed in the accident," the official said.


Millions of commuters have had a harrowing time the last two days after train services were curtailed following a fire in the main signal cabin at Kurla station. Work on a fire-ravaged signal network has been taken up on a war-footing, an official said.
