A 54-year-old woman died after being run over by the Mumbai-bound semi high-speed Vande Bharat Express train near Anand railway station in Gujarat on Tuesday, Railway Police said.
The victim, identified as Beatrice Archibald Peter, was crossing the track when the accident took place at 4.37 pm, said an official here.
Beatrice Archibald Peter, a resident of Ahmedabad, was apparently visiting a relative in Anand, he added.
The train was on its way to Mumbai Central from Gandhinagar Capital station. It does not have a halt at Anand.
Further investigation was underway, the official said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on September 30 flagged off the inaugural run of the train.
There have been at least three incidents of cattle dying on the track after being hit by the train in the last one month.
