The five reportedly jumped in front of Sambalpur-Jharsuguda DMU at around 8.30 PM. The driver of the train informed Government Railway Police (GRP) about the incident at around 9 PM following which GRP and Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel reached the spot and recovered the bodies.
“As per preliminary investigation, it seems to be a case of mass suicide. The bodies will be sent for post mortem,” said IIC, GRP, G Dung Dung.
Sambalpur MLA Raseswari Panigrahi, who reached the spot on being informed, said the incident is an unfortunate one. A proper probe will be carried out to ascertain the truth, she added.
