Peak-hour suicide shocked commuters at Bhyandar station, Mumbai


An unidentified man jumped onto the tracks and was instantly killed by an approaching train at the Bhyandar station in Mumbai. The incident, which took place on July 10, was caught on CCTV camera.

However, in the absence of anybody coming forward to claim his body even after a week, the man still remains to be identified by the Government Railway Police (GRP). He did not have any ID on him when he committed suicide. The man, thought to be in his 30s, jumped in front of a Churchgate bound train at Bhayandar station, as the train coming from Naigaon entered the station. CCTV footage shows the man – dressed in a pink shirt and jeans -patiently waiting for the train with other passengers on Platform 6, reported Mumbai Mirror.

His body was retrieved from under the train wheels. Apart from his cellphone and some cash, he had nothing on him at the time of the incident. GRP officials are now trying to track down his family by accessing his call data record (CDR).

A total of 228 deaths took place along the Western Railway network between January and June this year. Of this, 40 were suicides.
