A migrant labourer was killed on Monday when he attempted to board a train before it came to a complete halt. He slipped and fell under the train at the Ernakulam Junction railway station.
Kunalima (25), a native of Orissa, was a contract employee with a five-star hotel in Kundanoor and was going to his hometown for a short vacation. The incident took place around 4.45 p.m. when the Ernakulam-Patna Superfast Express (Train No: 22643) was approaching the railway station.
“While attempting to board the moving train, he lost his grip and fell under the train. The youth died on the spot after being run over by the train,” the police said.
