Mumbai: Young Girl Injured At Ghatkopar Metro Station Due To Barricade Hazard; Incident Sparks Concerns

A young girl sustained injuries on Wednesday while navigating the concourse area of the Ghatkopar Metro Station. Sources indicate that certain portions of the barricade had been removed, leaving old screws on the floor, which ultimately led to her fall.

According to sources, although the Metro administration had taken the precaution of highlighting these screws with markers, the victim failed to notice them for some reason, resulting in her unfortunate fall and subsequent injury.

Acknowledging the need for further improvements, Metro official assured that immediate attention had been given to the accident site and emphasized their commitment to ensuring that such accidents would not recur in the future.
