Tweets Had Forewarned About Elphinstone Station Stampede

Former Maharashtra CM Narayan Rane Forms New Party After Leaving Congress

Twenty-two people were killed and 39 injured on Friday in a stampede on a foot overbridge at Mumbai's Elphinstone railway station, police said.

The injured have been taken to a nearby hospital and senior railway officials are at the scene. Five of those injured are said to be critical.

Indian Prime Minster Narendra Modi tweeted: "My deepest condolences to all those who have lost their lives due to the stampede in Mumbai". As quoted by ANI, Goyal said, "In next 7 days all suburban stations will be inspected to identify vulnerable issues; will speed up work on FOBs".

Police at least 21 people have been killed in a stampede at a railway station in the west-coast Indian city of Mumbai.

The Mumbai suburban railway system is spread over 465 kilometers (289 miles) and operates 2,342 train services.

The Maharashtra government has announced that they will be giving a compensation of roughly US$7500 to the families of the victims.

Another eyewitness said that it was a tin portion of the bridge that broke and led to the scare of the collapse.

He said Rs 5 lakh would be given to the kin of each of the deceased. "The diagnosis revealed an axonal injury, which ultimately caused the death after no signs of recovery", said Dr Avinash Supe, dean, KEM Hospital. The panic stricken commuters also feared a possible short circuit, which made them all the more hysterical.

The accident has raised new safety questions about one of the world's biggest rail networks, which is struggling to upgrade infrastructure and safety after a series of deadly crashes in recent years. There was also water accumulation at the exit of the FOB and it was hard for people to go out.

There has since been outburst of anger among people as it surfaced that the authorities had been warned multiple times about the situtation, and spent only a pittance for the fix of the bridge.
