In their hurry, Vijaykumar, a resident of Aman Seva Housing Society near Rehmani Mosque in Kandivali, and his friend-they had gone to Mira Road-on Friday boarded separate compartments of the train for Kandivali.
“The train was leaving as they reached the platform and both caught it in a hurry. As a result, they ended up in different compartments. When the train reached Kandivali, his friend alighted but could no spot Vijaykumar anywhere. He tried calling Vijaykumar’s cell phone but it was not reachable. He informed Vijaykumar’s parents and a search was launched,” said an officer.
Early on Saturday morning, Vijaykumar’s parents received a call that the body had been found on the tracks near Mira Road. A college identification card was found in his pocket, which helped the police identify him and obtain contact details of the family, police said.
The injuries are consistent with massive head trauma, and police suspect he might have leaned out of the door and his head hit a pole.
