One killed in accident at Mumbai's metro rail site

Aslam Hunani in Mumbai | May 14, 2008 12:06 IST

One person was killed and one injured seriously when a rotary piling machine, working on the metro rail project site of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority, toppled over on an auto-rickshaw on Wednesday morning, crushing the passenger to death and grievously injuring the driver.

The piling machine also damaged the outer wall of the Bhavans AH Wadia high school on JP Road, Andheri west, and fire engines have rushed to the accident site. The police have cordoned off the road, and diverted the office-going traffic via Veera Desai road.

The police from the nearby Oshiwara police station have rushed to the spot, and remain tight-lipped about the incident.
