Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Lucknow -

LUC­KNOW: A Rail­ways em­ployee was run over by a train while he was at­tend­ing to it on plat­form No. 6 at Charbagh Rail­way Sta­tion on Thursday. The GRP called it an ac­ci­dent while the de­ceased’s kin ac­cused the Rail­ways of neg­li­gence. Ac­cord­ing to the GRP, the in­ci­dent was re­ported around 12 noon when Ram Sagar, mas­ter crafts­man, was at­tend­ing to the Varanasi In­ter­city train.

“While at­tend­ing to the train, he some­how lost his bal­ance and came un­der the wheels,” said Nitya Nand Singh, in­spec­tor, GRP, Charbagh. “My hus­band was not well but still he was asked to join duty. De­spite be­ing a JE rank of­fi­cer, he was not given helpers or se­cu­rity ar­range­ments. There was a sud­den jerk in the train and he came un­der the wheels. The depart­ment had not in­formed the train pi­lot and sta­tion mas­ter about the main­te­nance work,” said Sav­itri Devi, wife of Ram Sagar
