On October 21, a woman’s dress became entangled in the closed doors of a Mumbai Metro One train and she was dragged by the moving train to the platform’s end before being rescued.
The incident, which occurred at 4.10 p.m. at the Chakala station, was brought to light after the woman filed a police report following her recovery.
The video shows a woman attempting to free herself after her dress became stuck between the doors of a metro train. While a nearby commuter is seen banging on the guard’s cabin to alert them to the incident, another passenger is seen attempting to pull the commuter. However, before she can be rescued, the train accelerates and passes the platform, dragging the woman to the platform railings’ end. According to the video, she was later taken to the hospital on a stretcher.
There are no guards on the station to rescue the commuter or alert the train driver to immediately apply the brakes and stop the train, according to the video.
The woman Gauri Kumari Sahu was injured and admitted to the Seven Hill Hospital in Andheri. The Mumbai Metro One management covered her medical expenses. Meanwhile, Sahu has filed a written complaint against Metro One at the Chakala police station for alleged negligence and inadequate safety measures that resulted in her severe injury.
