Man jumps off moving train at station, dies

Bangalore, May 4, 2013, DHNS:

A priest who was returning to the City from Mysore fell to his death when he tried to get down from a moving train at the City Railway Station on Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as Sreekantha K S, 28, a resident of Raghavendra Colony, Chamarajpet.

“Sreekantha, a native of Arasikere in Hassan district, had been to Mysore to conduct a religious ceremony last week and was returning home in the push-pull passenger train,” his uncle Ramesh told Deccan Herald. As the train entered the station at about 9.15 am, it slowed down and was about to halt on platform 10. Sreekantha tried to jump off the train, but lost his balance. His leg got stuck between the moving train and the platform, crushing him to death.  Before the locomotive driver could realise it and bring the train to a halt, it passed over him. It travelled 50 feet before coming to a halt.


“His limb was severed. As he was rescued and dragged onto the platform, he was still breathing. However, he died soon after,” S Hemalatha, a passenger, said. The railway police later identified the victim from the voter ID card found in his bag.

Bodies found


Railway officials discovered bodies of two persons mowed down by moving trains in separate incidents on Friday.

The police, in the early hours of Friday, found the body of a 50-year-old man on the Bangalore-Mysore track near Telecom Layout. In another case, a 25-year-old woman jumped in front of the Karnataka Express on Friday morning at the City Railway Station.
Police said she was found loitering on the platform and jumped off it. The police are yet to establish the identity of the victims.
