Shahdol, MP, Dec 13 (UNI) A station house officer's mentally unsound 22-year-old son has committed suicide by touching a power cable after climbing onto the roof of a railway locomotive near Anuppur district's Venkatnagar Station, Government Railway Police said.
Yadvendra lay on the tracks yesterday but the 406 Bilaspur Passenger's alert driver brought the train to a halt in time. But before the railwaymen could reach the youth, he furtively climbed atop the locomotive and took the extreme step. Yadvendra died on the spot.
The youth's father is posted at Satna district's Uchehra and had sent his son to Rewa for treatment just two days back.
