According to the Dadar GRP officers, a passenger named Tara approached them at 10 am and informed them about a woman who had fallen off the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) train between Sion and Matunga stations.

The constable, Kiran Joy, rushed to the spot and found a woman’s purse on the track. She followed the tracks and found the woman who was identified as Tejashri Vaidya, lying near the drain adjacent to the tracks. Joy called for help and rushed the woman to the Sion Hospital, where she is in an unconscious state.

Speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Jayshree Mondkar, dean of Sion Hospital and LTGM Medical College, said, “There is no further development and her condition remains the same as when she was brought to the hospital. She is still on ventilator support. She has sustained severe injuries on the head due to which her skull got fractured and there is bleeding in the brain.”
