20000 Were Killed by Trains in Mumbai in 5 Years

Indian media often shout the human rights and democracy in India. But so what? A recent report shows that more than 20,000 people were killed by trains in Mumbai alone in 5 years.

Yes, I am not wrong. It is astonishing 20,000 ceased lives in India's finnacial captial and most rich city in a short 5 years. More ridiculously, If I am not wrong, the public transportation system in this "shining" city should be in the hands of an elected government.

India's Central and Western Railway was forced this week to release the harrowing data, showing at least 20,706 people have died over the past five years, after a Mumbai activist, Chetan Kothari, filed a request under the country's Right to Information Act.

The maximum deaths are due to people falling off crowded trains and electrocution of people sitting on the top of the train," Sharma said. He said many others were hit by trains when they tried to run across the tracks instead of using bridges.
