Commuters stampeded on a Mumbai railway bridge, the Indian financial hub, during the morning rush hour Friday killing at least 15 people, a disaster management official said.
The cause of the stampede was not immediately known but Tanaji Pawar, a spokesperson for Mumbai’s disaster management cell, warned that the death toll “is likely to go up”. He said there were at least five critically injured as well as the 15 confirmed dead. The cause of the stampede at the Elphinstone railway station amid a heavy downpour was being investigated, said a police official at the site of the accident.
