Kollam: In a tragic incident, two people were killed after being hit by a speeding train at Auvaneeswaram railway station here on Friday. The deceased are identified as Kunnicod native M Rahimkutty (59), a member of Vilakkudi panchayat and Auvaneeswaram native Sajeena (40), daughter of Shahul Hameed.

The incident took place around 2.20 pm on Friday. Both were waiting to board a train to Kollam. Amidst this, Rahimkutty’s mobile phone fell into the track and he stepped into the track to take it. During this time, a special train was crossing this track. Noticing the train, Sajeena tried to save the man who was on the track.
