Minimum of fifteen people have lost their lives while as many as 20 have been severely injured after a stampede that took place on a foot-over bridge at the Parel Railway Station.
According to the information given by the officials, the injured people are being rushed to nearby hospitals and a team of doctors have also reached the spot.
All the rescue work is underway and several injured people are being treated with first aid at the station itself. On the other hand few say that there was a rumour of the foot-over-bridge falling and this initiated the panic rush.
On the other hand the cause of injury is that there is a very narrow space in bridge passage and the railing for the bridge got broken as many were accumulated n that area due to rains.
