Mumbai sources have stated that 22 people were killed and over 30 sustained serious injuries in a stampede in Mumbai on Friday, when a crowd tried to leave a narrow railway bridge connecting two busy stations after heavy rain. Meanwhile as per reports, the stampede broke out at around 10.30 AM on the bridge between the busy Parel and Elphinstone Road local railway stations. These two stations are used by most of Mumbai's local train commuters as there are large number of offices in the area.



Sources have stated that there were more than the usual people on the bridge at that time, taking shelter from the rain. The tragedy reportedly happened when four trains came at the same time and people rushed to their respective trains. Because of the rain, a few people slipped and it led to a heart wrenching tragedy.

Moreover angry commuters said the bridge was too old and narrow to take the rush hour traffic. The residents blamed the authorities for their negligence in not building enough bridges in the busy area. Further the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal ordered an enquiry on the stampede. Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted condolences.

I describe myself with the word peculiar because I think in different ways than what other people usually think and I consider myself a cheerful and optimist girl, I usually have a positive attitude facing life. Academically I'm interested in writing specifically news and short stories. I'd like to revolve around writing which I fondly called The art of words. I have found enjoyment in reading and solving puzzles too.
