A 28-year-old groom died on his wedding day after being hit by Rajrani Express while crossing rail tracks here, police said on Sunday.

Naresh Pal Gangwar, who used to work as an engineer in a mobile company, was out for a walk by the railway tracks this morning when the incident took place, Superintendent of police (city) Rohit Singh Sanjwan said.

“The man was successful in saving himself from one train, but he was unable to save himself from the second train,” Sanjwan said.

His marriage party was to leave for Shahjhanpur on Sunday, the SP said, adding that his body was sent for post-mortem.
