Three workers were crushed under the wheels of a train in Bangladesh's southeastern Chittagong, some 242 km away of capital city Dhaka, Wednesday morning, police said.

Control room official in the local Sitakunda Police Station in Chittagong said the accident took place at around 7:30 a.m. local time when the victims were crossing a rail gate without noticing the train on the tracks and met the tragic accident.

The victims were identified as workers of a steel re-rolling mill of that locality, said the control room official, who did not prefer to give his name, adding no one on the train was hurt and the train proceeded as usual after the accident.
