An official said that Goyal "applauded the quick thinking and timely action of WR motorman Sawant at the time of the Andheri bridge mishap and announced a Rs 5 lakh reward for him".

Mumbai Mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar from the Shiv Sena, however, refuted the claim, saying the bridge did not come under BMC's jurisdiction, and that the civic body has been paying money to the Railways for its upkeep.

Heavy rains lashed Mumbai and some neighbouring areas since late last night causing water-logging in low-lying areas and disruptions in vehicular movement on some roads.

Since Monday night, the city was battered with more than 131 mm rainfall and the surroundings got between 130-210 mm, leading to waterlogging in places like Kandivali, Jogeshwari, Andheri, Ghatkopar, Santacruz, Sion, Kings Circle, Matunga, Kurla, Chembur, Tilak Nagar and other areas. Harbour line passengers have been allowed to travel freely on Central Railway, Central railway said.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi expressed concern for Mumbai commuters and urged them to "stay safe". Safety audit will be done of 445 bridges in Mumbai suburban. The injured have been rushed to the hospital.

India's railway minister, Piyush Goyal, ordered an investigation.

The bridge collapse has disrupted local Western Railway train services in Mumbai, as overhead wires have been affected due to the incident. The accident brought the Western Railway line between Bandra and Goregaon to a complete halt for nearly seven hours.

The incident triggered a blame-game between the railway and the BMC and rekindled the debate among commuters of prioritising the existing railway networks before implementing the grandiose Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet Train project. Our officers have reached to the spot and are accessing the situation.

He said around 700 employees of the railways, helped by some experts from Delhi and Lucknow, were working on the restoration work and the train services will be resumed completely soon. Expressing regret over the accident, he said it was "very unfortunate" and "most unexpected".
