Motor coaches of a Panvel bound train experience trouble; passengers suffer

Mumbai: The start of the evening peak hours on the Harbour line went for a toss on Monday when the motor coaches of one of the Panvel bound train experienced trouble.

The train had left Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) but when it reached Kurla at around 4.10 pm, it got stranded till 4.50 pm and was restored later.


This however, forced people to walk on tracks all the way to the nearest station.

Moreover, the platforms and trains across the Harbour line were densely crowded with people as the incident happened near Kurla.
