A 20-year-old man from Kalyan died while performing stunts in a local train between Diva and Mumbra. This comes close on the heels of another such case in the city, when a teenager fell to death after hitting a pole between Mumbra and Kalwa two weeks ago.
At the time, Tishad got hit by the pole in front of him. In this, he suffered a head injury and died without treatment. Recently, the deaths of adventurers in the electric train have been a series of stories.
This incident brought the number of such deaths on the Central Railway’s suburban section to four this year.
The deaths come despite safety campaigns by railway authorities urging commuters not to perform stunts or hang out of running trains. Between January and November, the Central GRP booked 17 people for performing stunts on trains and more than 500 for standing on footboards.
