A man died after being run over by a train in Khilkhet area of Dhaka today.

He did not notice the train initially and tried to avoid it when passers-by warned him, but it was too late and the train ran over him, leaving him dead on the spot, the police official said.

Juel has been unemployed for a long time until he came to Dhaka from Jhalakathi on Friday and managed a work as a plumber on Saturday, said Jahangir Hossain, a cousin of the victim.
