a heavy luggage and were in a hurry to catch the train to Malerkotla. Instead of crossing the tracks using the bridge, they preferred to walk on the tracks. While they were crossing the tracks, the Malwa Express, which arrives at the railway platform at 1.50 pm, came from the Jalandhar side and Somia was crushed to death under it.
Nazia and her son escaped with injuries as the train did not hit them directly.

In the meantime, someone called up the 108 ambulance service after which the injured were taken to hospital.
Employees of the Government Railway Police kept looking for the victims at city hospitals till late in the evening and had no information about their injured condition.
Investigation Officer Suresh Kumar failed to locate the injured and later switched off his mobile phone.
Sambhu Nath, in charge of the GRP police station, said, "We have sent two officers to locate the injured woman and her son in city hospitals. We have no details about the injured victims."
