Four persons were killed and several others injured after hitting a concrete fence when they were travelling on the footboard of a suburban train. The railways, later in a press statement, said that the bags of the passengers hit against the Railway cement fence, which made them fall down.

He also said that the concrete structure, which reportedly caused the accident, cannot be removed immediately and that the Railways is looking into the possibility of reducing the height and width of the fence. He also said that the Railways would study safety aspects in other stations on the suburban line where passengers fell off the trains and recommend appropriate safety measures.
