22-year-old woman dies after falling off overcrowded train

A 22-year-old woman, on her way to work, died after she fell from a running local train between Dombivli and Kopar stations in Mumbai on Monday morning.

The police said Charmi Pasad, who was travelling on the footboard, lost balance owing to overcrowding in the compartment. This is the fourth such accident for the year on the same stretch.

She lived with her two elder brothers and mother in Dombivli.

“The victim was taken to Shastri Nagar Hospital in Dombivli, where she succumbed to major head and back injuries. An accidental death report has been registered,” said a Government Railway Police (GRP) officer from Dombivli.

According to her brother, Charmi was a regular commuter and was on her way to office on Monday.

Railway activists blamed the unfinished 5th and 6th line between Thane and Diva for the increase in such accidents.
