Apart from this, Goyal also said that railway bridges would now be categorised as a mandatory feature, and will be expected to have all safety norms in place.
In a statement released after a high-level meeting on Saturday, the railways also said in order to enhance its monitoring mechanism, CCTV cameras would be installed in all the suburban trains in Mumbai within 15 months and subsequently, across the country.
Another Sena MP, Rahul Shewale, said he wrote to former Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in April 2015 demanding that the width of the overbridge where the stampede occurred should be widened for commuters' safety.
This narrowed the passage for people who wanted to use the bridge to move between the two stations. "But today, the fact the rains had slowed down the crowd and there were all kinds of rumours floating around, created panic among those who were on the foot-over-bridge", he said. He said inquiry report on the incident will come within 10 days.
