Three coaches of a local train have derailed near Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) during rush hour on Monday evening, according to reports.
The Bandra-CST train number 66 derailed at platform number 2 on Harbour Line, which connects 32 stations between Navi Mumbai and South Mumbai. The incident occurred between CST and Masjid Bunder stations at about 7pm.
Passengers were not injured as the train was reportedly running at a low speed. The cause of the derailment is yet to be ascertained.
Though suburban railway services had been cancelled between CST and Wadala Road stations, services from Wadala to Panvel were as per schedule. Services between Wadala Road to Andheri were also unaffected.
"Passengers were allowed to travel from CST to Kurla on the same tickets," PTI quoted Central Railway spokesperson AK Singh.
"A team of engineers and senior officials have rushed to the spot and efforts are on to restore services as soon as possible. Services are expected to resume at around 10.30 pm," he added.
On Tuesday, seven coaches of another local train in Mumbai derailed between Parla and Andheri station. The train was heading to Churchgate station from Andheri, reports said. Services between Borivali and Churchgate are reportedly suspended.
