However, while the bridge did not suffer any damage, the loco was damaged slightly after which it was sent back to Parel Workshop.

According to senior inspector Deepak Chavan, Matunga Police, they are currently waiting for instructions from the railway authorities. "We have not received any instructions yet, so we are waiting for that. As of now, there have been no damage-related complaints from anyone for us to register a case, so if there is anything, we will take action immediately," Chavan told FPJ.

Notably, the Loco will be dispatched again very soon after attending to the scratch marks on the body and any other damage if noted," said an official of CR adding that the transportation responsibility of the loco was given to an agency, hence they will cover the damage cost.
