A young man was crushed to death by a train in Akhaura upazila on Saturday evening.
The deceased could not be identified yet.
Police and witnesses said the youth was standing on the rail tracks near the outer signal on the north side of Akhaura Railway Station when Chattogram-bound ‘Subarna Express’ train hit him around 6pm.
Officer-in-charge of Akhaura Government Railway Police Station Shyamal Kanti Das said the youth did not go away from the rail tracks although loco masters of the train blew whistle several times. “It seemed that he was mentally imbalanced.”
He said they recovered the body and sent it to hospital morgue for autopsy.
