Officials said on Monday that a 25-year-old man passed away nearby Kanpur after reportedly falling from a moving train.
According to them, the event happened on September 24–25 between Ekdil and Bharthana railway stations in the Kanpur–Tundla division while Yashvardhan Rana, a basketball referee, was traveling on the Sangam Express.
Along with the Meerut squad, Rana traveled to Kanpur for the 61st Uttar Pradesh basketball competition at Chaudhary Harmohan Singh Yadav Paramedical College. Rana is also a trainer at the Modi Sports Academy in Meerut.
