In an unfortunate incident, three railway gangmen (Group D employees of Indian Railways) were mowed down by a train in Uttar Pradesh today.

In January this year, two gangmen were killed after being hit by a goods train while inspecting a railway line in Uttar Pradesh. The incident took place near Ujhani Railway station in Budaun district when gangmen Dilip (32) and Hasif (30) were inspecting the railway line. Due to severe cold both of them had covered their ears and probably could not hear the approaching train, police said.
