Fall from trains injures two

Two persons were injured when they fell off running trains near Jugsalai railway crossing on Tuesday morning.

The injured — Karhai Devi (65) and Tabrez Ali (25) — have been admitted to MGM Medical College and Hospital, where the elderly woman’s condition is serious.

According to railway sources, Karhai Devi from Madhya Pradesh was travelling in an overcrowded general compartment of Kalinga Utkal Express. She was on her way to Haridwar from Puri. As the train was chugging towards Tatanagar station around 6.30am, the victim amidst the jostling and pushing tried to make her way to the toilet. But she slipped and fell down on the tracks, sustaining head injuries.

Her husband Chhotelal Prasad rushed her to Khasmahal-based Tatanagar Railway Hospital from where she was shifted to MGM Medical College and Hospital in Sakchi.

Ali, on the other hand, was travelling in Ispat Express. A CCTV camera technician at Tatanagar station, he was returning home in Sini in adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district. Standing close to the door, he suddenly felt dizzy and fell down around 11am.

“Although he sustained head injuries, Ali is out of danger now,” said Tatanagar GRP OC R.K. Thakur.

Pedestrian killed

An Adityapur resident, Shiv Pujan Singh (24), received fatal injuries when a speeding bike hit him on Tata-Kandra Road on Monday night. He died at Tata Main Hospital.

The bike rider also sustained injuries and is fighting for his life at the hospital. His identity is yet to be ascertained.
