The train accident occurred when an MMTS train crashed into a Kongu express train waiting at the platform.

“Both trains were moving slowly since they were within the station limits. As per preliminary information, two persons were injured,” an South Central Railway official said. 

​According to reports, passengers suffered injuries and were taken to nearby hospitals.

According to media reports, the driver of one of the trains remains stuck and a rescue operation is underway.

​​In July, Indian Railways had claimed that due to a strict safety audit and advanced technology to curb train accidents, the number of train accidents had decreased from 118 in 2013 and 2014 to 104 in 2016-2017, 73 in 2017-2018 and 59 (thus far) in 2018-2019.
