Four persons were killed when they were run over by the Guwahati-Delhi Sampark Kranti Express at Kotgaon railway crossing in Ghaziabad, police said on Friday.

The mishap took place when the four victims - two on a scooter and three on a rickshaw - were crossing the track and failed to see the approaching train last night. Two other persons were injured and have been hospitalised.

The bodies have been sent for postmortem.

Though the railway crossing at Kotgoan remains closed due to heavy rail traffic, many people use it as a shortcut.
