Indian Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu today ordered an inquiry into the recent disruption of suburban train services in Mumbai.

On Monday, the services of Western Railway were hugely affected for nearly an hour following the power failure caused by theft of a battery box at Mahim station.

“Review of monsoon preparedness is being done at the highest level. Ensuring safe commute for the people is our priority,” Suresh Prabhu tweeted.

“We will explore not only reasons of disruption but also focus on remedial measures and act swiftly,” the minister said.

“Ordered time bound enquiry to come up with the causes. Disruption in Mumbai suburban has been taken up very seriously,” he said.

BJP Mumbai unit president Ashish Shelar, who met Prabhu in Delhi, today said he was grateful to the minister for such a “huge commitment” to redress problems of local trains during rains.

Prabhu has informed that a Railway Board team is being sent to Mumbai to monitor situation, Shelar said.
