Two migrant workers sustained serious injuries as they jumped off the Malda bound Farakka Express while it was moving through Malda town on Thursday in a bid to catch a bus for home.

Both were rushed to Malda Medical College and Hospital, one with the sole of his foot chopped off and another with a head injury. “The train was moving slowly through Krishnapally area. This seemed to encourage the duo to get off as they were in a hurry to catch a bus,” said a police officer of Englishbazar police station.
