Three people died and two people were injured after falling off trains in separate incidents on Wednesday and Thursday. The Thane Government Railway police have registered three accidental death cases.
Two of the incidents happened on Wednesday, and one on Thursday.
"All the accidents took place between Mumbra and Kalwa railway stations during the morning peak hours. Such incidents continue to happen because the trains on this line are extremely overcrowded during peak hours," said a police officer from the Thane Government Railway police.
According to the police, Shivaji Waghmare, 25, a resident of Rabodi in Thane, was traveling in an unknown local, when he fell off the crowded train at 11.30am and suffered serious injuries to his face. "He was taken to the Thane Civil Hospital, but because he had excessive bleeding he passed away soon after admission,” the officer said.
Police said of the two other people, one was an unidentified a 65-year-old man who fell off a local on Tuesday morning and suffered fractures all over his body. He was declared dead on Thursday morning. The third person was 17-year-old Mujabbuddin Ameen Shaikh, a resident of Mumbra, who fell off the train on Wednesday morning around 8.30am. He had suffered internal injuries and was declared dead at Sion Hospital on Thursday," the police officer said.

She fractured her left leg and has sustained several injures. The other injured person, Maheshan Razzak Shaikh, 25, a Thane resident, fell off a train at 9.20am and suffered injuries near his eyes.
