Despite frequent warnings and crack downs by the state’s government railway police (GRP) and the Centre’s Railway Protection Force (RPF) against trespassers and rooftop travellers, around 11 people were killed in accidental deaths and another 17 were injured on Monday. Every year, for a decade, more than 3,000 commuters are reported killed and a few thousands injured on Mumbai’s local trains.
Two deaths each were reported in the jurisdiction of CST, Kurla and Palghar GRP stations.
One death each was recorded in Dombivli, Vashi and Vasai road GRP police stations.
All those killed were men, the police said. Among the injured, around five are women. Even as the identity of four among those killed has been established, six people remain unidentified.
