Fourteen-year-old girl run over by train at Nuvem
Fourteen-year-old Shivshruti Pandey, resident of Murida-Pican, Nuvem, died after she was hit by a train at Nuvem on Thursday.
Police sources said that Pandey was returning from school when the accident occurred. "She was walking along the railway tracks, apparently oblivious of the train that was coming behind her. As the train hit her she was thrown off the railway tracks and hit an electricity pole. She sustained head injuries and died instantly," Konkan railway police sources said. The incident took place between 2.30pm and 3pm. The police cannot ascertain which train hit the girl. The Pandey family stays in a rented house, 50m from where the accident took place.
Police said the girl's father is a native of Bihar and works in a fabrication unit at Nuvem.
The autopsy is likely to be done on Friday. [TOI]
