A knife sharpener in the capital was killed early Wednesday after being run over by a train in Tuol Kork district’s Boeung Kak II commune.
The train, operated by Royal Railway, a subsidiary of tycoon Kith Meng’s Royal Group, was arriving at a stop when the allegedly drunk man ran under it.
Kan Kuntit, the Boeung Kak II commune chief, confirmed the victim’s profession but did not know where he lived.
He claimed the man was intoxicated and ran under the train while it was arriving at the station.
Witnesses told the police the victim’s name was Ka, and he was around 40. They speculated that he may have been suffering from mental issues.
