‘In panic, many jumped into darkness’

Kasara: Several passengers were either sleeping or were about to go to sleep in the Mumbai-Gondia Vidarbha Express on Thursday night when they were woken up with a jolt. Nagpur resident Parag Sadavarti (21) went through an hour-long trauma after he was stuck inside the toilet when the mishap occurred. 

    "I had stepped into the toilet when suddenly I heard a loud thud and the next moment the entire compartment shook. Due to the impact, I fell in the toilet. Somehow, I regained my consciousness and tried to open the door. But was found locked. On hearing my screams, my sister rushed to the toilet. Even she failed to open the door. For a moment, I thought I will remain stuck in the toilet. I was relieved when the RPF officials broke the door and freed me an hour later," Sadavarti said. 
    Another passenger, who was sleeping when the accident occurred, said she was lucky to escape as she woke up and held on to a handle. "The passengers in the train panicked and many began to jump into the darkness. Some of us stayed behind because we had luggages," she said. 
    Some of the passengers complained that it was difficult to move for the first few minutes as they had developed cramps. "Due to the accident, some passengers fell down and sustained minor injuries. Several suffered from cramps in the body,"' said passenger Sunny Singh. 
    Priya Varabhe (37), an associate professor in JJ Hospital, who suffered minor injuries said she was concerned about her brother Rupesh, a medical practitioner in Mumbai. "I am concerned about the health of my brother. Both his legs have been badly hurt. He also has some pain on his body after people fell on him," she said.
