Four members of a family, including two children, died after being run over by a train in Bihar’s Siwan district on Tuesday afternoon.

The accident occurred at Laxmipur village near Mairwa railway station on the Siwan-Gorakhpur rail section.

Officials of the GRP, RPF and the railways have reached the spot. The bodies have been sent for postmortem.
