MNA Science & Technology Desk: A day after the selfie craze inside a running train led to the deaths of several youths, the Eastern Railways authorities appealed to passengers to be careful and issued guidelines.

A railway spokesman said they have already launched campaigns in print, television and social media to make passengers aware of the risks of using phones while travelling.

In a horrific turn of events, a youth fell from a running train between Bali and Liluah railway stations while trying to click a selfie on Thursday night.

Four of his friends were hit by another train while rushing towards the accident spot.

According to eyewitnesses, the four friends got down at Bali station and started running through the railway track when a speeding train knocked them down, killing three on the spot and severely injuring the fourth.
