#Faridabad #Uttar Pradesh In a turn of events that took lives of young college students, three boys were run over by a speeding train while they were busy capturing a 'selfie' on the track with the approaching train.
The daring act went horribly awry as the train knocked them down, killing them on the spot before they could jump off the track. The fourth friend, Aneesh, who survived the accident, told police that they were attempting to click "eye-catching pictures" to upload them on social networking sites, according to a report published in Times of India.
The accident happened at about 9.30am in the railway tracks of Mathura, near Kosikala. they were on their way to Agra to see the Taj Mahal on Republic Day and had stopped the car they were

travelling in at the railway track to attempt the "daredevil selfie".
Those who died have as of now just been identified as Yakub, Iqbal and Afzal. All of them were between 20 and 22 and college-goers, police said. While Yakub belonged to Moradabad, Iqbal was from Faridabad and Afzal from New Delhi. Police said they were trying to establish more details related to the young men but were hampered by the fact that their counterparts in the other cities were busy with Republic Day security.

They were hopeful that the picture would get clearer by Tuesday.
Sanjay Kumar, additional station officer at the Kosi police station in Mathura, said the four friends wanted to take photos of themselves on the rail tracks as close to an oncoming train as possible.
Aneesh, who said he wanted to capture the dare devil act on his camera, told the cops the timing went horribly awry as a speeding train knocked them down, killing them on the spot before they could jump off the track.
Police have sent the bodies for postmortem.

It was not immediately clear whether the 45 year-old’s death was an accident or murder, he said.
Das could have fallen down from a Kolkata-bound train late last night and injury marks were found on his head, he said.
The victim’s mother Kasturi Das is an MLA from Maheshtala assembly constituency in West Bengal.

Mayor Sovan Chatterjee's hotelier brother-in-law was found dead on Sunday morning beside the rail tracks near Barsoi station in Bihar, his body battered but cash and valuables untouched.
Debashis Das, the 45-year-old brother of Chatterjee's wife Ratna,used to run a hotel and a resort in north Bengal and was president of the Trinamul Congress unit in ward number 16 of Maheshtala Municipality. His father Dulal is the chairman of the Trinamul-controlled municipality and mother Kasturi the party MLA representing Maheshtala constituency.
Debashis's body, in jeans and a sweater, was spotted by a police patrol around 6.45am beside the tracks about 100 metres from Barsoi station. The cops found an unreserved train ticket in his pocket that was bought on Saturday for a journey between Burdwan and Cooch Behar on an express or

mail train.
Barsoi, bordering North Dinajpur district, is about 420km from Calcutta.
"The deceased suffered critical injuries to the head, chest and lower limbs. Prima facie it appears to be an accident. But the actual cause of death can be known only after post-mortem," Jitendra Mishra, superintendent of Government Railway Police in Katihar, said.
Debashis was apparently headed for north Bengal by train, though mayor Chatterjee said nobody from the family knew he would be journeying.
"He was in Calcutta till at least 5pm on Saturday. We didn't know he would be leaving for north Bengal. He would usually inform the family about where he was going before setting out," the mayor told Metro.
Police sources said there was no railway pole near the spot where Debashis's body was found, making it unlikely that he was fatally injured while leaning out of a train. The proximity of the spot to the station has also raised doubts about how fast a train would have been moving while passing by.
"The body was lying on the western side of platform number 2. It is difficult to ascertain which train he was on. There are two trains from Calcutta that pass Barsoi early morning -the Darjeeling Mail and the Kanchankanya Express," Santosh Kumar, the GRP station house officer at Barsoi, said.
The Kanchankanya Express stops at the station but the Darjeeling Mail doesn't.
Debashis's businesses included a hotel named Kasturi in Malbazar town along with a resort at Tesimla, about 22km from Jalpaiguri. Both properties are family-owned.
Debashis's wife and two children weren't in Calcutta or Jalpaiguri when news of his death came in, family sources said.
Mahadeb Das, an uncle of his who oversees day-to-day operations at Kasturi, said Debashis's parents and mayor Chatterjee's wife had been staying at the resort in Tesimla for the past two days.
Chief minister Mamata Banerjee too had spent time at the resort during a visit to north Bengal.
"Debashis always calls me when he is coming to Malbazar. This time, I didn't receive any call. His parents and sister left for Barsoi immediately after hearing about the incident," Mahadeb said.
Mayor Chatterjee, who left for north Bengal after hearing about his brother-in-law's death, said Debashis would "travel extensively on business" but his journey plan for Saturday was puzzling.
Since the cash and valuables he had on him were intact, investigators have already ruled out the possibility of someone murdering him while trying to steal.
"He was wearing a gold chain and a ring. His wallet had Rs 7,500 in it. We identified him through his voter ID card and alerted Bengal police, who in turn informed his parents. We are scanning the reservation charts of trains that cross that stretch to see if he had a berth somewhere," GRP superintendent Mishra said.
