Indian city of Mumbai residents pay tribute to victims of 2006 train bombings
11 July 2007

MUMBAI, India (AP) - Thousands of Mumbai residents lit candles, offered flowers and bowed their heads Wednesday, the first anniversary of bombings that killed 188 people and injured more than 800 others in packed trains heading home.

Commuters placed red and white flowers and burned incense at suburban railway stations that were targeted on July 11 last year during the evening rush hour.

"I still check the luggage racks to see if there is a weird-shaped bag or if someone has left behind a package," said college student Vaishali Barve, whose left arm bears deep scars from last year's blast at Mahim station.

Police said the bombers planted the explosives in the overhead bins. Luggage racks in many Mumbai train coaches have since been removed.

Thirteen men allegedly belonging to Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, or Army of the Pure, and the Students' Islamic Movement of India, or SIMI, have been arrested over the bombings.

Some 15 men, including those accused of masterminded the blasts, are still at large.

R.R. Patil, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra state, on Wednesday revised the death toll in the train bombings to 188 from 207 given earlier. He said some missing people were counted among the dead.

"I will never forgive these people. All we were doing was going back home," said Suresh Kamath, an insurance officer who wears a prosthetic leg after losing his in a blast at western Jogeshwari station. "Innocent people died. I know I'm lucky to live, but so many have to live without legs, arms."

One of the seven coaches ripped apart in the July 11 bombings was placed back on the tracks Wednesday, after extensive repairs.

Mumbai commuters such as Kamath said they would not hesitate to travel on the coach despite the terrifying memories of bleeding passengers and screams for help.

"Loud noises still scare me," he said. "But I have to travel by train -- it's the fastest way to travel in Bombay," he said, using the city's former name.

More than 6 million people ride the crowded rail network into the city everyday.

Since the blasts, police have installed door-frame metal detectors and closed-circuit TV cameras at railway stations, and use hand-held detectors for random checks of commuters.

However, some fear the precautions are not enough.

"This will not stop terrorists. There are too many people for police to check everyone," said Jayanti Khapre, a nurse who stopped at Mahim station to pray for the victims. "But we can't stop traveling. We have to learn to live with this."

Victoria terminus has to be one of my favourite railway stations in the world. A truly amazing example of colonial architecture.

Maharashtra CM Fadnavis assures elevated rail corridor plans on track
Mon, 15 Aug 2016-12:33am



Fadnavis added that the state government has already approved the all-important State Support Agreement (SSA)

Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, during an interaction with journalists at dna's Mumbai office on Sunday, said the decks for the elevated corridors from CST to Panvel on Central Railway (CR) and Bandra to Virar on Western Railway (WR) have been cleared.

The CM said the state government has already approved the all-important State Support Agreement (SSA). It was the non-signing of this SSA by the previous government in May 2012 that led to the collapse of the Oval Maidan-Churchgate-Virar (OCV) corridor

Mumbai fights to fix its crowded, crumbling and deadly rail network
CNN Excerpt
October 7, 2017

It's a typical workday morning in Mumbai and commuters are rushing to get on and off trains at Prabhadevi station.

Every day in this city, seven and a half million people pack into commuter trains and steel themselves for the daily ordeal of traveling to and from work.
The veneer of Bollywood and billionaires may lend India's financial heart an aura of glamor, but the workers in the country's most densely packed city, from office staff to snack sellers, risk their lives every day while navigating a transport system meant to serve an earlier century.

At the center of the problem is the crumbling Mumbai local railway network -- the backbone of the city's transport infrastructure.

Statistics associated with the railway read like a war zone: Since 2007, according to Mumbai Railway Police data, nearly 38,000 people have died in train related accidents. That's more than 3,200 deaths every year and an average of nine deaths every day.

And now a fresh nightmare is seared in the minds of Mumbai's train commuters. Here -- where Mumbai's Prabhadevi and Parel stations are joined by a narrow footbridge -- 23 people were crushed to death on an exit stairwell on the morning of Friday September 29.

That morning there was a sudden heavy rain, and several trains had just arrived.

Exiting passengers had gathered on the overpass and near the stairways, waiting for the rains to subside. As more trains arrived, the usual crowding became extreme.

The result of an official inquiry into what triggered the stampede may take several weeks, but passengers offer theories: There were shouts about a roof collapse, screams about seeing sparks. Perhaps someone tripped. It doesn't take much to trigger panic when people are packed so tightly they can't raise an arm.

On a sunny morning several days on from the stampede, passengers trudge down the same stairs where the tragedy took place. Some squeeze past the exiting passengers to head up the stairs with wide bundles on their heads.

"Every day, we face death while traveling," says a young woman whose friend died in the stampede. She nods angrily toward two nearby policemen. "Why are they here today, after it has all happened?"

Along the dilapidated walkway at the base of the staircase, commuters pause to look at two makeshift memorials -- posters displaying photos of the victims hang above tables covered in melted candles and fading flowers.
