Train runs over Three Teenagers lying on Tracks

The train driver could only look on in horror as the fast-moving train ran over three teenage boys lying motionless on the track.

The driver, in his 30s, saw “three dark objects” at 3am near here and blared his horn but the victims did not move.

Segamat OCPD Supt Abdul Majid Mohd Ali said that the driver stopped at the next station and lodged a report at the Segamat police station at around 3.15am.

“Policemen found the mutilated bodies – two on the tracks and the third by the side of the track.”

He said the incident had been classified as sudden death but police had not ruled out foul play.

The victims have been identified as Mohd Faizul Adam, 16, from Jalan Buluh Kasap, Segamat; Mohd Zamri Idris, 17, from Kampung Lubut Selumur, Pagoh; and Mohd Zulfahmi Zulkifli, 17, from Jalan Pemuda, Segamat.

Supt Abdul Majid said that one of the boys had not gone home for the last three days while another was a school dropout.

He said police were still trying to find out if the victims were dead before the train hit them.

“We can’t be sure whether the victims were under the influence of drugs or alcohol,” he said.

Supt Abdul Majid urged those with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212 999 or the nearest police station.
