Deaf-mute Odisha man loses legs in train mishap; left to die in writhing pain
Vyasanagar: The Government Railway Police (GRP) reportedly turned a blind eye to the sufferings of a deaf-mute youth hit by a goods train at Jajpur Road railway station in Odisha today. Even the personnel did not arrange an ambulance for the differently-abled youth whose two legs were run over by the goods train at the railway station. The youth later succumbed to the injuries while undergoing treatment at the SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack.
As per reports, Arjun Kumar Bhanj (36) from Taruana village under Ghasipura block along with his younger brother was crossing the Jajpur Road railway station. However, Arjun fell down on the track after his legs slipped. In the meantime, a goods train passing through the railway station run over the legs of Arjun.
Even though Arjun was wreathing in pain on the railway track and his younger brother cried for help, the GRP personnel patrolling in the station remained nonchalant. The personnel even neither arranged an ambulance nor provided a stretcher to Arjun.
Arjun’s younger brother informed the ambulance services, but nobody turned up.
Following this, Arjun’s brother took him on a cycle trolley to the Jajpur Road Community Health Centre. When the condition deteriorated, the youth was shifted to the SCB Hospital where he succumbed to the injuries at around 3.30 PM.
