Passenger Fatality as Middle Berth Collapses on Nizamuddin SF Express Train

In a tragic incident on the Ernakulam-Hazrat Nizamuddin Millennium Superfast Express, EM Ali Khan, a 62-year-old passenger from Kerala, died following an accident aboard the train. The incident occurred on June 16 as the train traveled through Warangal, Telangana. Khan, originally from Ponnani in Malappuram, was fatally injured when an upper berth, not properly secured by another passenger, collapsed on him while he was asleep on the lower berth.

The accident resulted in Khan sustaining multiple fractures, including severe damage to his spine and cervical vertebrae. Emergency services were contacted, and railway staff at Ramagundam station coordinated an unscheduled stop to facilitate Khan’s quick transfer to a private hospital. Despite prompt medical attention, his injuries proved to be fatal, and Khan passed away shortly after the incident.

Officials from the Railway Ministry have ruled out any malfunction of the berth. The upper berth, according to the spokesperson, fell because it wasn’t correctly secured with the available chains, an essential precaution that passengers are advised to take when occupying these berths. This unfortunate event has prompted calls for increased awareness on the importance of safety procedures while utilizing train berths to avoid similar incidents in the future.

The deceased, Ali Khan, was undertaking a journey with a friend to meet a relative in Punjab and had plans to visit New Delhi as part of their itinerary.
