Three buffaloes mowed down by train

Three buffaloes were hit by a train in an unfortunate accident near pole number 47/28 near Aiyre Phatak on the Diva-Vasai route on Tuesday. While two escaped with injuries the third got run over as two compartments passed over it before the train came to a grinding halt. This was the Diva-Vasai train and the accident was reported by the Kopar railway Station Manager.

The RPF at Diva station were mobilised immediately, along with railway gangmen, to clear the tracks after this accident at around 2.30 pm and the location was cleared at 4.30 pm, with train services on the line resuming soon after. “The owner of these buffaloes never showed up at the location, seemingly to avoid any enquiry” said the Station Manager.

Following the accident, the train run was cut short to Bhwiandi station for proactive checks and those wanting to travel up to Vasai luckily got the Panvel-Vasai train which showed up at the station soon after.
