An unidentified man on Monday jumped before a Nilgiri Mountain Railway (NMR) train.
Police sources told The Hindu that as the train coming from Coonoor was a few hundred metres away from the Ooty station, the man, aged about 45, ran alongside for a short distance and suddenly leapt in front of the train.
The train was stopped and the man who sustained multiple injuries was rushed to the Government Headquarters Hospital here, where he died. The Railway police have registered a case. — Special Correspondent
