Mumbai: In a heart-wrenching incident that unfolded at Mumbai’s Sion station, a 26-year-old man lost his life after being tragically crushed between a moving train and the railway platform. The shocking sequence of events, captured by CCTV cameras, sheds light on a harrowing altercation that took a fatal turn on a fateful Sunday evening.

Altercation escalates into tragedy

A seemingly routine encounter escalated into a devastating tragedy when 26-year-old Dinesh was crushed under the wheels of a train at Mumbai’s Sion station. The chilling incident occurred at approximately 9:15 pm, leaving a community in shock and disbelief.

Incident caught on CCTV

CCTV footage provides a chilling glimpse into the unfolding drama that led to Dinesh’s untimely demise. Dressed in a white shirt and matching trousers, Dinesh reportedly bumped into 30-year-old Sheetal Mane on the platform, igniting a chain of events that would prove to be fatal.

A moment of friction between Dinesh and Sheetal quickly escalated into a heated altercation, with Sheetal brandishing her umbrella to repeatedly strike Dinesh in a fit of fury. The situation intensified as Sheetal’s husband, Avinash, joined the fray and delivered a fateful slap that caused Dinesh to lose his balance and tumble onto the tracks.

Desperate attempt to avert mishap 

As the impending danger of an oncoming train became apparent, shock and panic gripped bystanders who rushed to the edge of the platform. Frantic gestures and urgent waving, including Sheetal’s umbrella motions, were employed in a desperate bid to halt the approaching train. Despite valiant efforts, Dinesh’s attempts to regain the platform proved futile.

Trapped between the platform and the train, Dinesh’s desperate struggle took a tragic turn as he was crushed under the wheels of the moving train. The heart-wrenching incident marked the end of a young life that had once been full of promise.
