The commuters who get frightened bolted from the train while others limped out, and at least one cyclist collapsed.

Further, in the incident, a total of five people were critically ill, but they survived. On the other, around 29 people have been hospitalized with gunshot injuries, smoke inhalation, and other ailments.
