A  30-year-old woman from Ghatkopar gave birth to healthy twins aboard the Mumbai-Vishakhapatnam Express (18520) yesterday. The incident took place as the train arrived at the Kalyan station at 7.52 am.

The lady, identified as Salma Tabassum Shaikh, suddenly had labour pain after which passengers alerted the railway officials. 

After getting information about the incident, officers Nitin Gour, Neelam Gupta and Surekha Kadam attended to the passenger, railway officials said. The Kalyan Station Manager said the Central Railway medical team and the Railway Police were rushed to the spot and quickly provided the necessary medical treatment. The train was halted at Kalyan for half an hour.

Salma delivered the twins safely, of which one is a baby girl and the other a boy. The condition of both the mother and her twins was  said to be fine. Salma is a resident of Narayan Nagar, near Gousiya Masjid in Ghatkopar, Mumbai.

After the successful delivery, Salma was taken in to the Rukmanibai Hospital for post-delivery care.

According to Manoj Gupta, station manager from Kalyan, “She was travelling with her father from Kurla Terminus (LTT) towards Nizamabad in a coach reserved for the handicapped.”
