Mumbai: An 18-year-old college student was stuck in a jam for four hours after his iPhone, worth Rs 62,000, got stuck within the gap between two seats in the first class coach of a local train on Thursday.

The student, Nimish Asrani, who was in an Asangaon-bound train at the time of the incident, spent over three hours attempting to retrieve his phone. Meanwhile, the Central Railway (CR) administration assured him that he would get his smartphone after workers retrieved it at the car shed at nighttime. However, the mobile was retrieved at Badlapur station at night.

Mr Asrani, who is pursuing BMS in RD National College, said, “I boarded the train at Dadar around 3 pm. I felt a jerk at Diva station around 3.45 pm and my phone slipped into the space between the seats. I tried to retrieve my mobile phone but all efforts proved futile.”

A co-passenger then called the Railway Protection Force (RPF) helpline number, 182. The RPF said it would send a team to Kalyan station to retrieve the phone.

However, the co-passenger was informed that they could not attend to the train midway hence they would attend to him at Asangaon. When the RPF personnel had arrived, they could not retrieve the phone.
