Two commuters were injured in separate incidents of stone pelting on suburban railway tracks, at Byculla and Wadala, on Tuesday night. Both were admitted to Sion Hospital by the railway police. While one of them was discharged after first aid, the other is under going treatment.

Navanath Karale, 39, who works as a driver, said, “After dropping my boss at his Colaba residence, I came to Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and boarded a Thane-bound slow local at around 9.13pm to go to my home at Ghatkopar. There was rush in the second-class compartment, and hence I was standing near the door. When the train was passing between Byculla and Chinchpokli, a boy standing near the tracks flung a stone at me which hit my chin. Some co-commuters helped me alight at Dadar and informed the railway police. They rushed me to Sion Hospital where I was administrated four stitches before being allowed to go home.”

The police have registered a case under section 152 (maliciously hurting or attempting to hurt person/s traveling in trains) of the Indian Railway Act, but not arrests have been made so far.

The other victim, Satish Tari, 30, a resident of Kharghar in Navi Mumbai, boarded a Panvel-bound local at CST at around 9.12pm.

He was standing near the door in the second class compartment when the train was between Wadala and GTB Nagar railway stations. An unidentified boy flung a stone towards the commuters, which hit him below the right eye. He alighted at GTB Nagar railway station where the railway policemen rushed him to Sion Hospital. He is undergoing surgery.
