Mumbai, Oct 31 (IBNs): Railway minister Piyush Goyal and defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman made a surprise visit at Elphinstone station in Mumbai, where at least 23 people died in a stampede which occurred in late September, media reports said.

The two union ministers are also accompanied by Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

In one of the worst tragedies in Mumbai in recent times, at least 23 people died and 32 seriously injured in a rush-hour stampede in a narrow railway bridge between two railway stations after a heavy rain.

The incident occurred in Prabhadevi Railway Station which was earlier known as the Elphinstone Road railway station.

Several daily commuters died after they were trapped at the railway station and the footbridge as disturbing footage of bodies on the bridge, some against the railing, left everyone shocked.

Reports said some were seen jumping off the bridge to escaped the stampede.
