Four individuals, including an Assistant Sub-Inspector of police, lost their lives during a tragic firing incident that occurred on the Mumbai-Jaipur Superfast Express train (Train Number – 12956), as reported by Western Railways early Monday (31 July). The distressing event took place near Palghar railway station in Maharashtra.
