Bhubaneswar, Mar 17: The Orissa police on Thursday said the two IIT students whose bodies were recovered from railway tracks under Satya Nagar flyover, were victims of an accident, thus putting an end to different speculations. Dinesh was a first year mechanical student while Tejaswi belonged to the electrical stream, the inspector Mr Kar said. Eyewitnesses said the duo was in between two trains on parallel tracks. Trains velocity perhaps dragged them under the wheels,” Ranjan Swain, an eyewitness said. He added: They were standing in between the parallel tracks as a goods train was passing on one track. Unaware of a passenger train coming on the side track, they were sandwiched in between. Panicked, they were dragged under the wheels, Swain said.  “It is accident case. To cut short the distance from their institute at Toshali Plaza to Laxmsagar to catch the hostel bus, they avoided flyover and tried to cross the railway line. They had crossed one railway track and standing just near the second parallel line on which another train was coming. They perhaps could see the second train and were dragged under its wheels,” Government Railway Police inspector Smruti Ranjan Kar said. The two deceased were identified as B. Tejaswi (18), daughter of B. Ratnakaram, a conductor working with Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation, and D.Dinesh (19), son of late D. Motilal of Krishnanagar Colony, Hyderabad.  The parents of the victims, who arrived here in the morning, were inconsolable when they saw the bodies of their children at Capital Hospital.
