Srinagar: A 27-year-old-man was crushed to death by a speeding train in Nowgam area of Srinagar city, officials said Saturday.
A Railway official said that the man was walking in the prohibited area and had a headphone fixed in his ears.
The official identified the deceased as Nadeem Manzoor son of Manzoor Ahmad of Bagati Kanipora. The incident took place at 7:10 am, the official said.
Since 10 meters on either side of the railway track are prohibited and signboards stand erected in this regard, people are requested not to venture into the restricted zones, the official said.
The official said that after an accident last year, the railway authorities had pasted posters on public places including passenger sheds and other prominent places besides distributed them among people in local mosques, asking people not to venture in restricted zones.
“It has been specifically mentioned about the distance to be maintained and people were asked not to venture into those zones,” the official added.
