The incident caused chaos at the Andheri railway station as daily commuters were rushing to catch local trains. Singh is likely to be booked under sections of the Railway Act.

Singh told the RPF that he entered the platform after he lost track of the route and and mistakenly took his car on the ramp leading to the platform, reports News18 .

The Andheri railway station is reportedly at a ground level and parallel with the main road outside the station area, and is separated only by a few barricades.
