Patna: Walking on the railway tracks, while wearing earphones to hear music, turned fatal for a teenager in Bihar’s Saran district, as he was run over by a train, his family said on Thursday.
The fatal incident occurred near Tero railway station under Madaura block of Saran on Wednesday evening.
The victim, identified as Rahul Kumar, 15, was returning to his native village, Sonali under Mashrakh block, from his maternal grandmother’s house in Tero village.
