Delhi,Crime/Disaster/Accident, Thu, 19 Apr 2012 IANS

New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) Railway Minister Mukul Roy Thursday condoled the death of two people after they fell from an overcrowded Mumbai suburban train and announced a compensation of Rs.2 lakh each to their families.


"The minister has expressed deep condolence over the unfortunate and tragic death of two people in Mumbai and announced a compensation of Rs.2 lakh each to the next of kin of the two victims," said a railway official.


Two commuters were killed Thursday when they fell off an overcrowded local train, an official said as the Central Railway's suburban services continued to be disrupted by signalling woes, leading to chaos in the city. Fifteen people travelling in other packed trains were also injured.


Millions of commuters have had a harrowing time the past two days after train services were curtailed following a fire in the main signal cabin at Kurla station. Work on a fire-ravaged signal network has been taken up on a war-footing, an official said.
