Run over by train, man bleeds to death

Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD: People attacked the Uppuguda railway station office in the old city on Thursday after a passenger bled to death after his legs got severed having fallen on railway track while trying to catch a train.

Twenty-eight-year-old Sheshumani missed the MMTS train at 9.20 a.m. and managed to purchase a ticket at the last minute when the Guntur passenger train arrived at the station. As the train started moving, he ran after it trying to get into the last compartment and slipped. He came under the wheels and his legs got severed. On seeing the profusely bleeding passenger lying on the track, co-passengers and residents of the adjacent areas shifted him onto the platform.

Allegation

They alleged that two railway guards at the station refused to respond even after seeing the man's plight. “Some railway staff sitting inside the station office too ignored our requests to help the injured man,” the passengers told media persons.

They also charged that the 108 ambulance service did not turn up despite several calls. Even as they tried to make alternative arrangements to shift the injured person to hospital, he bled to death.

Enraged over this, the mob attacked the railway station office damaging windows, doors and a monitor. The Chatrinaka police rushed to the spot and dispersed the mob. “The passengers were already impatient as one train got cancelled earlier. They became furious as the ambulance did not turn up, Kachiguda Railway Police Inspector G. Ravi Kumar, said.
