malibagh rail crossing

With a train approaching (not in the picture), a rickshaw carrying a passenger squeezes through the closing gate at the capital’s Malibagh rail crossing, ignoring the risk of a possible accident. According to Buet’s Accident Research Institute, at least 239 people were killed and 470 others injured at level crossings and adjacent areas in rail-related incidents last year. The photo was taken on Sunday. Photo: Sk Enamul Haq
