A Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus-bound (CSMT) train from Panvel did not stop at Khandeshwar station around 1.24 pm, inconveniencing commuters waiting on the platform, the official said.

After skipping the first halt, the train stopped at other stations on the Harbour line during its onward journey to CSMT, he said.
