Mumbai, March 20 (Xinhua) At least one passenger was killed and six were injured as a local train derailed in Mumbai Thursday afternoon, news channel TIMES NOW reported.

The accident happened after a local Kasara-CST train derailed a couple of minutes after it proceeded from Titwala station on its way to CST station.

Officials on the site said that five coaches had derailed and people must have got secondary injuries as the train was not very crowded and people might have hit themselves against the metal parts inside the train due to the sudden jerk arising out of the derailment.
