The incident took place when Central Railway (CR) employee tried removing the flowers and decorative items that were attached to the Kharkopar-bound train which was stationed at Belapur. However, the items touched the overhead wire and it led to sparks shutting down the pantograph, cutting off the power supply to the train. Local train services on the route resumed operations around 5.27 pm.
