A 38-year-old man suffered head, hand and leg injuries after falling off a train on the road under Vitawa railway bridge in Kalwa, Thane, on Monday.

The victim, Mohammed Abdul Rashid Sheikh, is a Bandra resident. He is currently undergoing treatment at Sion Hospital, said a police officer.

According to police, the incident took place at 10.10am.

“Sheikh fell when the train was crossing the railway bridge. He fell on the road below and suffered severe injuries on the head. We have registered an accident case after speaking to the witness who took Sheikh to the hospital,” said S Bagde, senior police inspector at Kalwa police station.

“Sheikh was in an unconscious state when he was brought to the hospital in Kalwa. He has received major head injuries and has bruises on his arms and legs. He was given primary treatment at the hospital and then shifted to a civic hospital in Mumbai,” said a senior medical officer, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital Hospital in Kalwa, Thane.

“Once the patient [Sheikh] regains consciousness, we will take his statement. We are yet to determine the exact cause of him falling off the train,” said Bagde.
