Since he was unable to get inside the compartment, he was hanging outside the train. Nakate lost his balance after the train left from Kopar station and fell on the tracks. One of the commuters has recorded a video showing Nakate gradually slipping away and falling on the tracks.
Police officials from Dombivli Railway Police took him to the Shastri Nagar hospital in Dombivli (West), where he was declared dead on arrival. Nakate was a resident of Sunil Nagar in Dombivli (East) and was working with a logistics company.
