Man tries to board moving train, loses his left arm
On Saturday night, Paramesh reached the Sujathapuram station around 10pm but was late for the Chamarajanagar – Mysuru passenger train, which was already chugging out. He tried to board the moving train, but slipped and came under its wheels, said railway officials. While he managed to escape from coming under the wheels, his left arm was crushed.
Sujathapuram being a halt station, trains usually stop for just a minute. On Saturday, nobody noticed Paramesh coming under the wheels. He got up from the rails and walked towards the main road, 30 metres from the railway station.
Railway police, who registered a case, lauded Basavaraju for helping the accident victim.
