A 20-year-old newspaper hawker, was found dead close to the railway tracks between Thaheku and Nagarajan area near Salesian College, Dimapur Friday morning. 

The deceased, identified as one Bablu was a resident of Kuda ‘B’ Khel village Dimapur and hailed from Ganjam, Orissa. 

Family members were informed that the victim was run over by train. However, there was no definite conclusion about being run over by train.

After being informed, Youths of Kuda ‘B’ village Nagarjan, rushed the victim to hospital at around 9 a.m. Sources said the victim was still breathing but he could barely talk. He could barely utter some words which were also inaudible, family members said.

According to the medical report, the victim bore injuries on the head and the right femur or thigh bone and he was declared dead at 3:35 p.m. An X-ray report also showed that the femur had snapped into two. It was learnt that no FIR filed when the body was being taken for cremation at the time of filing this report. 

Interestingly, the victim’s sister-in-law told this Reporter that the bicycle, mobile and cash were found missing when the body was found. The sister-in-law also disclosed that the victim would have collected substantial amount of money as monthly payment of newspaper bills from clients.

The family members seemed to be baffled because the belongings of the victim- his bicycle, mobile and most importantly wallet containing money-were missing from the spot where he was supposed to have been run over by train 

Another person living close to the deceased’s house disclosed that Babu was hard working and had opened a shop dealing with edibles in the colony.
