The accurate means of a bolt was not famous though witnesses claimed that a remarkable gossip of a suspected electrical short-circuit triggered a panic run. Officials of BrihanMumbai Municipal Corp (BMC) Disaster Control, however, blamed it on overcrowding on a feet over overpass due to torrential rains as people took preserve there.
Celebrities pronounced it’s a horrific, painful, comfortless and an avoidable tragedy. Here’s what they tweeted:
Shekhar Kapur: Unbelievable, unpleasant and distressing tragedy during Elphinstone Road. But how fast we spin tellurian tragedies into domestic censure games. Our politics currently are totalled in a cost of tellurian lives.
Nowhere do extremes between resources and misery uncover some-more than in Mumbai. Costliest genuine estate in universe and tellurian tragedies like Elphinstone. Unfortunately, a building run has driven Mumbai expansion though any Infrastructure support.
Its been going on for years. A city we can’t breathe (in), we can’t find a place to live (in), we risk your life roving to work. City of Dreams or City of Nightmares.
Anupam Kher: Horrified, saddened and jolted by a deaths and injuries caused due to a bolt during Elphinstone hire in Mumbai. Prayers and condolences.
Hansal Mehta: Governments are bustling renaming stations, roads and landmarks – though they don’t give a damn about a city itself. And we keep electing them. Roads are f**ked up. Stations are messed up. Landmarks are in ruins. They have new names though a same aged flaws. This city is dying.
Anil Kapoor: Loss of lives due to stampede. A normal day of work and transport turns comfortless for many. Shocking. Development?
Richa Chadha: In India, we get no advantages of a high taxation. Life is inexpensive — either it’s babies in Gorakhpur or people during Elphinstone. Tragic. We remove some-more people in internal sight mishaps annually in Mumbai alone (1500) than we do to terrorism. Who is accountable? I’d rather be an indignant loyalist than a feign nationalist… And direct some-more from a inaugurated representatives, who are open servants, NOT RULERS.
Mohanlal: Sad to hear about bolt during Elphinstone.
Raveena Tandon: Tragic. Deepest condolences to a victims families. An avoidable tragedy. Very unfortunate.
Riteish Deshmukh: Shocked to hear about a Elphinstone overpass tragedy – my condolences to a families who have mislaid their desired ones and prayers for a injured. Weak infrastructure + packed bridges/Places = Ticking Time Bombs. Wake up! This is not a cost to compensate to learn a doctrine Elphinstone.
Onir: Horrific. 22 Dead, many harmed in bolt nearby Mumbai’s Elphinstone station
Kabir Bedi: True! Over 3000 people die, each year, in accidents on Mumbai’s rail network. Needs to be a vital media story. Scandalous. Elphinstone.
Horrified, saddened jolted by a deaths injuries caused due to a bolt during #Elphinstone hire in Mumbai. Prayers condolences.🙏
