4 killed as train hits auto-rickshaw

At least four people were killed and two others injured as a train hit an auto-rickshaw on unmanned Annadanagar level crossing in Pirgachha upazila yesterday. The deceased were identified as Hamidul Islam, 34, Nurun Nahar Begum, 24, Sumi, 21, Mostafizur Rahman, 42. Officer-in-charge (OC) of Pirgachha Police Station Rezaul Karim said the Bonarpara- bound train rammed the auto-rickshaw when it was passing Anandanagar level crossing at 11 am, leaving Hamidur and Nurun Nahar dead on the spot.

Sumi and Mostafizur died on the way to hospital, he said. The injured were sent to Rangpur Medical College Hospital, the OC said.  The bodies were sent to morgue for autopsy, he added. At least 421 people, including 89 women and 46 children were killed, and 366 others including four women and 33 children were injured in 393 railway accidents on 2019 across the country.

The Shipping and Communication Reporters Forum (SCRF) observation identified seven major reasons behind the railway accidents in the country. Those include, unapproved and unplanned rail crossings at places for the sake of short-cut road communication, most of the rail crossings have no guard rails, expiry of economic lifetime of most of the locomotives, using mobile phones while crossing rail lines, faulty signaling system and weak infrastructure, lack of skill and negligence of technical persons and drivers, and lack of adequate manpower and machineries.
