A 43-year-old police naik (a rank above constable) from Mumbai Police was run over by a fast train at Sion railway station on Tuesday morning. The railway police have registered a case of accidental death. The police are finding out if it was a case of suicide or track crossing death.
The incident took place at 11.10 am on the CSMT end of Sion railway station ahead of platform number 4 from where fast trains pass.
The deceased, Prasad More, 43, was crossing the tracks when a fast CSMT-bound train ran him over. No suicide note has been found on him and statements of his family will be recorded, police said.
