Elphinstone stampede - Mumbaikar files a petition against the railway officials”

In picture: Stampede breaks out at on a narrow railway footover bridge connecting the Parel-Elphinstone Road stations of Western Railway in Mumbai on Sept 29, 2017.

The miscreants claimed that the hospitals had disrespected the dead by branding the bodies with numbers on their forehead.

The police registered an offence under IPC sections of trespassing and unlawful assembly against five unknown person for entering KEM Hospital and trying to do "some mischief" with senior doctors. A police official had said the hospital staff had given them photos of each of the dead to make a poster, which was then prominently displayed in the hospital campus. Dr Pathak, in his statement, said, "When we suddenly received 22 bodies at KEM Hospital's Emergency Ward and several of relatives were rushing at once to identify their next of kin, it would have been traumatic to have all of them see all 22 bodies for the identification of their loved ones. It would be unjustified and unwise to criticise this scientific method adopted by us with the sole intention and goal of speedy and honourable handing of the dead to their relatives", he said. It was being said that Sena workers were angry on the writing of identification numbers on the forehead of Elphinstone stampede victims.

The death toll rose to 23 as injured patient Satyendra Kanojia succumbed to his injuries during treatment on September 30.

A few of them slipped down and were trampled after they reportedly heard that there had been short-circuit which triggered panic.

While railway minister Piyush Goyal has asked for a high-level inquiry, one of the Mumbaikars Pradeep Bhalekar has filed a petition in Mumbai High Court against the railway officials. Reports say that he also promised to install escalators at crowded stations and CCTV cameras in local trains.
