Alarmed by the casualties, WR to shift the pole between Nalasopara and Vasai Road.
A small rail stretch between Nalasopara and Vasai Road stations has been dubbed a death zone with seven commuters losing their life after being struck by a pole there this year.
At least three people were injured in similar incidents, which passengers have blamed on the pole's close proximity to the tracks.

officials know the particular stretch by the number of the overhead equipment there, 53/13-14. While the Government Railway Police (GRP) said there had been a total of seven deaths in the section so far this year, information and commuters' accounts obtained by Mirror revealed the fatal incidents occurred between June 12 and September 11.
Most of the people killed were travelling on Churchgate-bound trains during the peak hours, when overcrowding forced them to stand on the footboard or left them partially hanging outside.
Mehfooz Manzoor Alam, from Nalasopara, boarded one such local on the morning of September 11. He worked at an embroidery unit in Dharavi. Around 8.30 am, he fell off the train after being hit by the pole. Mehfooz got married only eight months ago.
"He suffered severe head injuries. There were no major injuries on other parts of the body. It's clear that he was struck by the pole," said social worker Moin Khan, who helped authorities identify Mehfooz.
Rahul Ramprasad Kanojiya, 22, who also lived in Nalasopara, died in a similar incident on August 2. He worked as a computer operator with an Andheri firm.

Requested our RM / RB that at least 3 Anthodya train coaches have to be converted as 2S _ Reserved Sitting coaches with one TTE.
Reservation gives the elderly passenger / women passengers assured seat for comfortable travel.

I agree. There should be 2S. Since there is hardly any difference between unreserved Vs 2S, this will move will not have any controversy.

Mumbai: Motorman prevents mishap after spotting iron rod on train tracks By mid-day online correspondent | Mumbai | Posted 12-Jun-2017
The timely intervention of an alert train motorman averted a major mishap between Vasai and Nallasopara stations on Saturday night, after he spotted a metal rod on tracks. Motorman Nitin Chandanshive, applied the emergency brakes in the nick of time after seeing the rod as the train was nearing Nallasopara. According to The Times of India, commuters from Vasai on board were travelling to Churchgate. The rod was handed over to the Railway Protection Force (RPF), after Chandanshive and guard Ramvachan Singh made it certain that the rod was taken off the tracks. Investigations are currently ongoing in the matter. Railway officials feel the

rod may belong to a construction site as there have been repairs being undertaken in a nearby bridge. This isn't the first time that an iron rod was discovered on train tracks. A bet made by a jail inmate with drug addicts, saying he would give them Rs 2,000 if they placed an iron rod on tracks to derail a train, was behind what became known as a case of railway sabotage in Diva.
The Mumbra police arrested the five drug addicts. A major tragedy was averted on Jan 24 this year, when an iron rod 6.32 m in length was found on the tracks on the Diva-Panvel route. A motorman saw it and stopped the train. A few days after the police arrested them, two other drug addicts were arrested for the same reason — an iron beam was allegedly thrown by them on rail tracks. The 9 feet long iron beam was found on the railway track between Reay Road and Dockyard Road stations, and a major tragedy was averted as the alert motorman of a train, Anandkumar Upreti, saw it and stopped. But as the train was speeding, three coaches ran over it. But the case became more complicated following that. The GRP expressed doubts if the five that the Mumbra police apprehended in the case are the ones involved in the sabotage — one of the biggest reasons being different mobile tower locations of the five at the time of the incident. While one's was in Nashik, location of four people came up as Mumbra near the incident spot an hour before the crime happened. And it's also come to light that these four, who were near the spot, aren't the ones who have been arrested. A senior railway police officer investigating the case said, "The GRP investigated and found no evidence against them. After the 10.23 pm train passed, the motorman of the 10.36 pm train saw the rod. He didn't see any person around. So, the accused, who said they were drunk and under the influence of drugs, had 13 minutes to place the rod on the track in perfect alignment. How did they manage in such a state?" asked the officer.
