Journalist crushed under train
A 26-year-old journalist, who was going home for his engagement, died in the national capital after he was crushed by a train when he fell down trying to boarding another locomotive.
The accident took place in New Delhi railway station last night when the victim Jayant Kumar Rath was trying to board a train to his home in Orissa, police said.
As the platform was very crowded, Rath and other fellow passengers were standing between two tracks to board the Puri-bound Purushottam Express train.
While boarding the train he was pushed by one of the passengers and was crushed under the wheels of another moving train.
His relatives cremated his body and are awaiting his parents arrival to collect his remains, police said.
