Dhaka Railway police (Kamalapur) OC Mazhar-ul-Haque confirmed the matter and said that Mosharraf was walking on railway tracks adjacent to platform 8 when a locomotive ran him over.

Quoting locals, he said, the man was run over and lost both of his legs while the train engine was being repositioned. Despite blowing horn, the man did not hear the sound, likely because he was on a phone call.

The accident took place due to sheer carelessness, said the OC.

He is currently receiving treatment at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH), police added.
