He was not responding to treatment at the local hospital and that is when the doctors referred him to Silchar Medical College and Hospital.
Locals said he was going back to his home. “The car was passing through an illegitimate crossing at the Lamajuar area. Actually, the crossing was blocked with concrete pillars. But the pillars were removed and people used to cross through that path daily. The Railway officials never inspected.
