Chetan Singh, known for his short temper, unleashed a barrage of bullets from his official automatic weapon around 5 am. This deadly spree claimed the lives of his colleague, ASI Tikaram Meena, and three passengers onboard the train. Authorities have identified two of the victims as Ajgar Abbas Shaikh and Abdul Kadarbhai Mohammed Hussain Bhanpurwala, while the identity of the fourth victim remains a mystery.

In the grim aftermath of the shooting, RPF constable Chean Singh tried to make a daring escape by pulling the chain and hopping off the running train. However, his run was cut short by swift action from the Government Railway Police and RPF officials who apprehended him at Mira Road.
