AHMEDABAD — A man, who sat on railway tracks along with his 13-month-old son in a bid to commit suicide, changed his mind after seeing a train speeding towards them and ran away, leaving the toddler to die in the horrific incident.
Mehul Patel, who owns a small milk dairy, had been demanding dowry from his wife and had a heated exchange with her on the issue on Monday night. An enraged Patel left home on the excuse of taking his son for a walk but when he did not return till midnight, the family members approached the police.
The police told them about the train accident involving a child who was later identified by the wife from the boy’s clothes.
According to the police, the driver had stopped the train after spotting a man and a child on the tracks but not before the kid was crushed to death. Patel, who saved himself, fled the scene after witnessing the gruesome incident, and is on the run.
The police have registered a case of murder against Patel.
