to rescue the passengers, the NDRF official said.
The first local train left the CSMT station in south Mumbai but could not move beyond Masjid Bunder.
While 150 passengers in this train were rescued, another 100 were still inside, the NDRF official said.
The other local which had come from Karjat got stuck 60 metres outside Masjid Bunder, he said. Around 60 passengers were inside and a rescue team had been sent, he added.
Water had collected up to three feet on the tracks at this spot, forcing the motorman to stop the local, he said.
