The stampede at Elphinstone road railway station killed 27 people. "It is not the first time that it rained in Mumbai".

"Bullet train is not for ordinary people".

"Some witnesses say the stampede was triggered due to rumors in the crowd that the bridge had collapsed or people had got electrocuted, others say women slipped off the stairs, setting off panic in the crowd", police officer Sunil Deshmukh said.

"The government has not been able to maintain the existing set-up of the railways, and is launching new projects".
