In a horrific incident, a man was hit by a train when he was trying to take a selfie on the tracks despite being warned by the local railway staff. He escaped miraculously with a minor head injury. 

A resident of Hyderabad, 25-year-old T Siva was trying to take a selfie with a train in the background by standing next to the tracks near the Borabanda station between Begumpet and Lingampalli railway stations on January 21. 

He was warned about the approaching local train by the on-duty home guard but still didn’t budge, and was hit by the train, said a South Central Railways release in Hyderabad. 

Luckily, he wasn’t run over but fell by the side of the track and sustained a head injury.

After necessary treatment, he was taken to the concerned Railway Protection Force officer.  

He was counselled, but also a case under the Railways Act was registered against him, the release said. 

Taking selfies or any other photograph by trespassing on railway tracks entails punishment under the Railways Act, the release said.
