Train runs over man in Howrah
A middle-aged person was killed after he was hit by a train near Howrah's Bauria Station on Tuesday. The deceased, identified as Bhupendra Halder, was resident of North 24 Parganas' Khardah. He was crossing the train track at around 7:15 pm when a Howrah to Patna Jan Shatabdi Express hit him. The local resident said Haldar was a worker at the level-crossing near Bauria Rail Station. "I saw the incident. I saw the train -- Jan Shatabdi Express was passing through the main line. He was working there along with the other workers. All the other left the spot in a hurry but Haldar did not have time to move," said an eye-witness. Police took his body to post-mortem. "We have to see why he could not move from the spot whereas the other people timely moved to safety. We are waiting for the post-mortem report," said a police officer. The local resident alleged that it was lack of communication between Railways' officials and those workers in the level-crossing. "This incident would not have happened if these people were timely informed about the arrival of the train," said a local shopkeeper.
