However, neither the police nor the PRO of the railway station could explain the reason behind the stampede.

It is speculated that the stampede has occurred due to rains, as a visual on TV channels is showing rain water gushing through a broken roof of the footbridge in the station.

However, all trains are moving normally, police said.

Railway minister Piyush Goyal, who is scheduled to travel by the same route on Friday, will visit the spot.
