In a bizzare incident a Paras Zutshi, final year student of National Institute of Technology was run over by a speeding train on the Jalandhar-Amritsar track while he was crossing it on Thursday night. This shocked his friends who still couldn't come to the terms of the stark and hard reality.
Paras Zutshi and his four friends were returning to their hostel after having their dinner at a dhaba. Paras was behind and his friend says he couldn't see train coming when another friend crossed the track. Such was the impact that they say it took 45 minutes to locate the body. One of his friend said that Paras was using WhatsApp application while crossing the track but other friends denied it.
Angry students started protesting demanding over bridge be provided near the campus gate. Police pacified the protesting students. Paras was the only son of his parents and he lost his mother sometime back.
