Bareilly: On Thursday, at around 6:18 a.m. an unidentified man was run over by the Akal Takht Express coming from Howrah at the Shamshan Bhoomi crossing. Locals who witnessed the accident immediately informed the police. The driver of the train also alerted the control room at Bareilly railway station. However, the man’s body lay on the track unattended for over 6 hours during the course of which it was run over by 16 trains.

 

After the station master informed the GRP officials at the Bareilly railway station, they immediately told the Police at Quila station about the incident and asked them to take the body of the man in their custody and send it for post mortem formalities. However, this led to a war of words between the GRP and the local police. None of them was willing to take the body as it lay there for more than six hours. In the meanwhile, the body was run over by six more trains, including the Saryu Yamuna Express, Poorbiya Express, PBR Express, Gharib Nawaz Express, Awadh-Assam express and the Gharib Rath.

 

The body was taken for post-mortem only after the senior railway official stepped in. by the time, Quila police took it for post-mortem, the body was deeply mutilated. The identity of the person has not been established yet.
