  • 24 passengers fall ill after consuming food in Mumbai Karmali Tejas Express

A committee comprising senior divisional commercial manager of central railway (CR), additional general manager of IRCTC, and additional chief medical superintendent (ACMS) of CSMT was formed to inquire into the food poisoning incident, soon after it occurred.

Train number 22120 was running from Karmali to CSTM, and passengers were served cutlets, omelette and soup.

According to IRCTC about 290 passengers were served breakfast. Till late evening all the passengers were said to be stable but they were kept under observation at the private hospital, said officials.

"First treatment was given to passengers by railway doctor".

The passengers on board complained about feeling uneasy after having the breakfast served to them. "The cause of uneasiness amongst other passengers appears to be repercussion of above as vomiting on coach floor vitiated the air quality and triggered uneasiness", the inquiry report said. Forty of the 294 passengers, travelling to the city from Karmali in Goa on Sunday, were rushed to the Life Care hospital in Chiplun after the train was stopped there.


"Total 300 breakfasts (170 vegetarian and 130 non- vegetarian) were been served", the IRCTC said.

The first case of alleged food-poisoning was reported from the first group when two children vomited in the coach. "Food sample have been taken for investigation". "Director Catering service is proceeding to Mumbai to follow up the matter".

Mr Kajal Chakravarti, a tour guide of a tourist group from Kolkata said that he and his group has been travelling to various places in Maharastra and Goa for the past 16 days and they have been carrying their own cooked food. "Monitoring is being done to ensure proper assistance", IRCTC said in a statement.

The high-speed Tejas Express boasts of modern amenities like LED TVs, Wi-Fi, celebrity chef menu among others.

Many passengers who travelled by the Tejas express are fuming with this occurrence and have demanded stern action to be taken against the officials concerned.
