Mumbai rains: Harbour line trains come to standstill, other lines running late

With heavy rains continuing since morning, the harbour railway line between Kurla and Chembur has come to a standstill due to water logging, officials said.

"The harbour line between Kurla and GTB Nagar came to a halt around 2:30 pm due to flooding of tracks," railway police officials said.

The railway line linking the city to the satellite town of Navi Mumbai has come to a halt as a result.

As heavy rains continued, it wasn't certain when services on the line will be restored.

Heavy rains have lashed the city since this morning and are expected to continue through the week.
