A 14-year-old schoolboy lost both his legs after he came under a train while allegedly tryiing stunts on a running train at Dockyard Road station on Tuesday. The police said the boy, who has been admitted to JJ Hospital, was on his way back from his school in Byculla at the time.


Around 1.30pm, Feroz Mehboob Alikhan boarded the train to Mahim from Sandhurst Road station. He lives at the Azad Nagar slums. Bhaskar Tidke, inspector of Wadala GRP, said, “The train had just left from Dockyard Road station, when the boy tried to perform some stunts on the train, fell on to the tracks and lost both his legs.”

Soon after Alikhan fell, commuters pulled the chain and informed the stationmaster. GRP officials immediately took the boy to JJ Hospital, which helped save his life as he had lost a lot of blood, police said.
