As per the Central Railway (CR) chief public relation officer (CPRO), Sunil Udasi, no damage and injury had been reported. “It’s a minor accident due to some technical reason. The situation is normal and under control,” he said. Confirming the incident he said, “A local train has touched the buffer at CSMT.”
