Three persons were killed and five injured in rain-related incidents on Friday,28 June, in Mumbai, which was lashed by the first spell of heavy rains this monsoon that marked its most delayed arrival in the city in 45 years, officials said.

Mumbaikars woke up to heavy rains, ending a long dry spell, but a few hours of incessant showers left the financial capital struggling with the familiar monsoon woes of waterlogging, delayed trains, traffic jams and choked drains.

While the Western and Central Railways have reported no major disruption in the city’s local train network, a few stations, including Kanjurmarg, have witnessed flooding of railway tracks.
